About SkyWatch

Our story

 

TeamPhotoAug16.png

SkyWatch is on a mission to make satellite data accessible to the world. Every day, trillions of pixels are captured by satellites orbiting our planet. With new applications for this data being discovered every week, the demand for this imagery is increasing across many industries. However, the current process for purchasing satellite imagery is tedious and time-consuming. We experienced this problem first hand and, after weeks of trying to find the right data, we decided to come up with our own solution.

Utilizing our past experience in building NASA-award winning software (called Supernova), our team is developing SkyWatch EarthCache™. We believe that providing a singular point to discover and access the world’s remote sensing datasets will bring amazing change to geospatial analytics. This mission isn’t about us. It’s about you. We want to make it easy for you to monitor the progress of crops, predict the markets, track ship and airplanes, measure global warming, or create other game-changing applications. Our goal is to be the leading provider of data and intelligence from space.
