Spiral Blue LatConnects Australians with the latest Earth Observation data
Accessing Earth observation data just got easier. Spiral Blue is delighted to announce that we are partnering with LatConnect 60 to provide Australians with increased satellite tasking capabilities.
LatConnect 60 is the latest satellite provider to join the Spiral Blue team and will be the newest provider on Cobalt - a satellite imagery tasking platform developed by Spiral Blue. Cobalt users will be able to order the latest high resolution satellite imagery at 80cm per pixel.
The competitive advantage of LatConnect 60 imagery is one of the least onerous EULAs in the market. Customers can own all raw, and processed imagery, and duplicate it without additional charges. LatConnect 60 also offers highly competitive pricing, with tiered cost reductions for larger orders. This data has applications in:
“This is another step towards democratising EO data,” said Spiral Blue CEO, Taofiq Huq, “We're proud to be partnering with a satellite operator that shares our values and vision for this industry.”
To be the first to access LatConnect 60 imagery when it becomes available, get in touch to set up a Cobalt account.

About Spiral Blue
Spiral Blue is a Sydney-based SME focused on building the next generation of Earth observation services with artificial intelligence and Space Edge Computing. Spiral Blue technology has applications in defence, city planning, utilities, and other industries. Founded in 2018, the company has recently launched its first Space Edge Zero prototypes to orbit, and is now continuing to gather further in orbit performance data. Spiral Blue is a member of the Wolfpack Space Hub.
Spiral Blue was recently awarded the Minimum Viable Product Grant (MVP Grant) from the New South Wales state government. This was the result of a competitive application process. This grant will see Spiral Blue's first space edge computing product Space Edge Zero move from the proof of concept stage to the prototype stage.
Spiral Blue is one of the winners of the maiden Gravity Challenge. We were selected as one of the winners of the SA Power Networks Challenge, and awarded the Meteor Award for Most Innovative Use of Space Capability.
Spiral Blue has completed testing of components of Space Edge Zero in preparation for building a fully integrated prototype. This prototype is to be launched and tested in space in 2021. Discussions are currently underway with launch providers to make this happen.
