Pléiades 50cm Global High-Resolution Satellite Imagery


Pléiades 1A and 1B are the newest high-res optical imaging satellites, operating as a constellation in the same orbit, phase 180° apart. Pléiades 1A was launched on December 17, 2011, 1B on December 2, 2012 – both from Sinnamary, French Guiana. Each satellite has a maximum acquisition capacity of 1 million sq. km per day and has exceptional agility to maximize acquisitions of a specific area of interest using 5 acquisition modes: Target, Strip Mapping, Tristereo, Corridor and Persistent Surveillance.
