Flock of 28 nanosatellites is targeted for launch in December

In December 2013, Planet Labs will launch the world’s largest constellation of Earth observing satellites.

Planet Labs announced yesterday successfully launched its most recent satellites, Dove 3 and Dove 4, into orbit on a Dnepr vehicle. This will be closely followed by the launch of Planet Labs’ “Flock 1″ fleet of 28 satellites in December, which will be the largest constellation of Earth-imaging satellites ever launched.
