BlackBridge in Action

BlackBridge's five meter pixel-sized imagery from its constellation of five identical Earth Observation satellites is used by many public and private organizations in order to map and detect changes over natural and man-made disaster areas.

Organizations such as the DLR's Center for Satellite Based Crisis Information, the International Charter, GMES, and the EU project SAFER - Services and Applications for Emergency Response all use BlackBridge imagery to create post-event damage maps.
