Urban Sky is developing the first-ever reusable 'micro-sat' version of a near-space balloon, armed with sensors that collect high-value Earth observation data over entire cities, serving a multi-billion dollar imagery market and making daily and weekly aerial imagery collection a cost-effective reality. Leveraging advances in component miniaturization, first-of-its-kind balloon reusability, and the high vantage point of the stratosphere, the Microballoon drastically reduces the cost of high-resolution remote sensing and weather-related data capture over broad areas, leading to more impactful data over more areas than ever before. With a new wealth of data from the stratosphere - this completely untapped layer of Earth’s atmosphere - we can fundamentally change the collective human understanding of the surface of our planet and urban centers.Something looks off?
