Global satellite imagery provider Planet has acquired Boundless Spatial in a move aimed squarely at US government business. 

The acquisition will extend and expand Planet’s relationships with commercial agricultural clients and the government, according to material released late last year.

Planet will inherit Boundless’ government contracts, which includes a range of expertise and software already deployed within government departments.

The company says it will form a new subsidiary, Planet Federal, to focus on growing government business further by ‘representing Planet’s commercial products for U.S. government requirements’.
