Pléiades: Two satellites that deliver 50cm resolution imagery
What is Pléiades?
The identical Pléiades 1A and Pléiades 1B satellites deliver 50cm imagery products with a 20km swath. Their location accuracy and image quality are excellent, making them an ideal source of data for both civil or military projects. The space and ground segment have been designed to provide data in record time, ensuring daily revisit capacity anywhere on the globe and unrivaled reliability when it comes to collecting new images. Thanks to our innovative One Tasking services, commissioning Pléiades satellites and obtaining the imagery you requested, exactly when you need it, is fast and incredibly easy.
- Very high-resolution multispectral twin satellites (50cm products)
- Acquisition capacity is available onboard satellites, committed to delivering newly acquired imagery to customers
