Live Earth Mission
Live Earth Imaging was created to make intelligence from satellite imagery more accurate and accessible to people working on the front lines of natural disasters, humanitarian missions, international conflicts and economic development.
Founded in 2015, Live Earth Imaging is built around a disruptive optical sensor technology which will vastly expand the capabilities and usage of geostationary remote sensing systems. For the past two decades, satellite imagery has come to play an invaluable role guiding business decisions, civil government services, military operations, disaster relief efforts, and environmental preservation. By offering instant access to live, continuous, high-resolution and true-color imagery of events on the ground, in the air, or in the atmosphere, Live Earth was created to greatly expand humankind’s access to information about the world.
