How can I check if my sensor is a Lead or a Backup sensor?

  • Updated


In each pixel, the Type 1 sensor with the highest Local Reputation Score enjoys the status of lead Type 1 sensor. Other Type 1 sensors in that pixel (if there are any) are regarded as backup sensors.

If two or more sensors of the same type have the same Local Reputation Sco­re in a given pixel, priority to get lead status is attributed to the sensor which first streamed data in that pixel.  

You can check if your sensor is Lead or Backup by clicking on your Airqino in the Sensors section of the PlanetWatch App 

  • The lead sensor will be displayed as: status L
  • The back up sensor will be displayed as: status B
