Deimos-2 satellite sensor (0.75m)
Deimos-2 is a minisatellite of Deimos Imaging satellite constellation, launched in June 19, 2014. It is a follow-on imaging mission of Deimos-1 Imaging S. L. U., an Elecnor company of Boecillo, Spain.Deimos-2 provides 0.75m resolution imagery with a 12 km swath and a high revisit rate. It is aimed at operating an agile minisatellite for high-resolution EO (Earth Observation) applications. provides 1 m panchromatic and 4 m multispectral images in a swath of 12 km at nadir, at an orbit altitude of ~600 km.
The multispectral capability includes 4 channels in the visible and near-infrared spectral range (red, green, blue and NIR).
Maxar’s Advanced Elevation products provide the highest quality digital elevation models (DEMs), available off-the-shelf or custom-built. These models are GIS ready. Therefore you need not to focus on processing. You can focus on your analysis. With global coverage and options for accuracy and resolution, these models can be used in a very effective way. Traditional satellite imagery provides only 2D vision on the ground. But the world is a three-dimensional place, and 2D imagery only shows part of the picture.
Our elevation models enable you to measure and analyze your project in 3D to make your work more worthwhile. Maxar’s elevation models are a key component in a variety of geospatial applications like in construction planning, disaster modeling, hazard assessment, telco applications, volumetrics and change detection, lithology, geology and geophysics analysis.
QuickBird Satellite Sensor (0.65m)
Maxar’s QuickBird satellite sensor was successfully launched October 18, 2001 at Vandenberg Air Force Base, California, USA. Using a state-of-the-art BGIS 2000 sensor (PDF), QuickBird satellite collects image data to 0.65m pixel resolution degree of detail. This satellite is an excellent source of environmental data useful for analysis of changes in land usage, agricultural and forest climates. QuickBird’s imaging capabilities can be applied to a host of industries, including Oil and Gas Exploration & Production (E&P),Engineering and Construction and environmental studies.
IKONOS Satellite Sensor (0.82m)
Maxar’s IKONOS satellite sensor was successfully launched on September 24, 1999 at Vandenberg Air Force Base, California, USA.
The IKONOS Satellite sensor is a high-resolution satellite operated by Maxar. Its capabilities include capturing a 3.2m multispectral, Near-Infrared (NIR) / 0.82m panchromatic mapping of natural resources and of natural disasters,tax mapping, agriculture and forestry analysis, mining, engineering, construction, and change detection.
It can yield relevant data for nearly all aspects of environmental study. IKONOS images have also been procured by Satellite Imaging Corporation for use in the media and motion picture industries, providing aerial views and satellite photos for many areas around the world. Its high resolution data makes an integral contribution to homeland security, coastal monitoring and facilitates 3D Digital Terrain Models and Digital Elevation Models.
WorldView-1 Satellite Sensor (0.46m)
WorldView-1 satellite sensor was successfully launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base, California, U.S.A., at 11:35 Hrs Pacific Daylight Time (PDT) on September 18th, 2007. Operating at an altitude of 496 kilometers, WorldView-1 satellite has an average revisit time of 1.7 days and is capable of collecting up to 750,000
state-of-the-art geo location capabilities and exhibits stunning agility with rapid targeting and efficient in-track stereo collection.
WorldView – 2 Satellite Sensor (0.46m)
Maxar’s WorldView-2 satellite sensor, launched October 8, 2009, provides 0.46m Panchromatic (B&W) mono and stereo satellite image data. With its improved agility, WorldView-2 is able to act like a paintbrush, sweeping back and forth to collect very large areas of multispectral imagery in a single pass. WorldView-2 alone is able to collect nearly 1 million km2 every day, doubling the collection our constellation to nearly 2 million km2 per day.
And the combination of WorldView-2’s increased agility and high altitude enables it to typically revisit any place on earth in 1.1 days. When added to the satellite constellation, revisit time drops below one day and never exceeds two days, providing the most same-day passes of any commercial high resolution constellation.
The WorldView-2 imaging payload is the second such system engineered and manufactured by ITT Space Systems Division for Maxar. Once deployed, it will operate at an altitude of 770 kilometers, and the advanced on-board imaging system will capture pan-sharpened, multispectral images (with better than 0.46-meter resolution) from almost 500 miles above the Earth. These images supply unprecedented detail and geospatial accuracy, further expanding the applications for satellite imagery in both commercial and government markets. Added spectral diversity provides the ability to perform precise change detection and mapping.
In addition to numerous other technical improvements, WorldView-2 also has the ability to accommodate direct tasking, which will allow select customers around the world to load imaging profiles directly up to the spacecraft and execute delivery of the data directly down to their own ground stations.
GeoEye-1 Satellite Sensor (0.46m)
The GeoEye-1 satellite sensor was successfully launched on September 6, 2008. The satellite, which was launched at Vanderberg Air Force Base, California, provides a resolution of 0.46 meters. The GeoEye-1 Satellite sensor features the most sophisticated technology ever used in a commercial remote sensing system. This newly developed sensor is optimized for large projects, as it can collect over 350,000 square kilometers of pan-sharpened multispectral satellite imagery every day.
GeoEye-1, launched in September 2008, has been flying at an altitude of about 681 kilometers and is capable of producing imagery with a ground sampling distance of 46 centimeters, meaning it can detect objects of that diameter or greater.
During late summer of 2013 the orbit altitude of the GeoEye-1 Satellite sensor was raised to 770 Km / 478 Miles. GeoEye-1 new nadir ground sample distance (GSD) is 46cm compared to the previous GSD of 41cm.
WorldView-3 Satellite Sensor (0.31m)
The WorldView-3 satellite sensor was recently licensed by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to collect eight-band short-wave infrared (SWIR) imagery.The satellite was launched in 13th August,2014. WorldView-3 Was the first multi-payload, super-spectral, high-resolution commercial satellite panchromatic resolution, 1.24 m multispectral resolution, 3.7 m short wave infrared resolution and 30 m CAVIS resolution.
has an average revisit time of < 1 day and is capable of collecting up to 680,000 km2 per day.WorldView-3 bears a strong resemblance to WorldView-2 launched on October 8, 2009 in terms of its performance characteristics. The WorldView-3 satellite sensor benefit from significant improvements including cost savings, risk reduction, and faster delivery for its customers.
WorldView-4 Satellite Sensor (0.31m)
This was previously named as GeoEye-2 and now it is introduced as WorldView-4. WorldView-4 is the successor of worldView-3 and is a planned third generation Earth Observation Satellite launched in November, 2016. This is capable of giving a maximum resolution of 0.31m which is similar to
