Pléiades Neo Satellite Launch Anniversary

"2 years ago, on the 2nd of November 2021, we were celebrating the Pléiades Neo commercial launch. The launch of Pléiades Neo 3 and 4 in April and August 2021 will be remembered as historic milestones for Airbus Intelligence, and truly opening new opportunities for our global partners and customers.

We have 2 outstanding birds flying, fulfilling their promises and consistently delivering more data with lower latency allowing us to support needs across all markets and meeting the growing demands from our users. The combination of Pléiades and Pléiades Neo enable us to deliver extensive coverage and revisit capabilities in very high resolution through our full Earth observation Constellation."

Manuel Lagarde

Vice President, Head of Sales & Marketing (Intelligence, Airbus Defence and Space)
