Welcome to Skybox Imaging

Pioneering a more transparent world

About Us

Your World On Demand

In today’s connected world, every organization is deeply impacted by events across the globe on a daily basis.  Skybox Imaging was founded on the premise that an ability to better understand these phenomena could fundamentally change the way humanity makes decisions on a daily basis -- increasing the profitability of businesses and improving the welfare of societies worldwide. 

We build satellites, we write code, and we deploy data centers. But at heart Skybox is about unlocking the human story by approaching daily global activity as the world’s largest data science problem. 

We call this Earth Observation 2.0, where satellites are simply sensors and the magic is in harnessing scalable computing and unbounded analytics to find answers to the world’s most important geospatial problems regardless of data source.

At Skybox, technology is a means to an end. We don’t design and build our own systems for fun (though it is). We do it because it gives us the flexibility to address your needs in the way that works best for you and your organization. Our satellites and software are constantly evolving to better serve you. Reach out to tell us what you need. We don’t believe in ‘build it and they will come.’ We do believe in building powerful high performance systems that match the real needs of real customers changing the world on a daily basis.
