BlackSky Holdings, Inc. (“BlackSky”), a leading technology platform providing real-time geospatial intelligence and global monitoring, today shared that Bluesky International (Bluesky), the leading aerial survey company in the U.K. and Republic of Ireland, has joined BlackSky’s Global Reseller Program. As a reseller, Bluesky has access to BlackSky’s image archive and its subscription-based global monitoring platform, Spectra AI.
