Dove Satellite Constellation (3m)

Dove satellite constellation holds the world record of the most satellites launched at once from one rocket and will collect imagery up to 2 million km² per day. The Dove satellite constellation is a fleet of nanosatellites deployed from the International Space Station to take images of Earth. The satellite constellation is operated by Planet Labs Inc., 88 nanosatellites called Doves weighing only 11 pounds each, provides 3 meter multispectral image resolution for a variety of mapping applications including several humanitarian and environmental applications, from monitoring deforestation and urbanization to improving natural disaster relief and agricultural yields around the world. The constellation revisits more frequently than any existing government or commercial satellites.
