The Pleiades satellites work as a pair in phased orbits, and can perform daily revisits to any point on Earth. They provide highly detailed imagery at 50cm panchromatic resolution as well as 2m multispectral resolution.
About Pleiades 1A/1B
The Pléiades constellation provides
colour products at 50 centimetres that
deliver an extremely high level of detail.
These products’ location accuracy and
excellent image quality make them the
ideal solution for precision mapping.
Designed for civil and military users, the Pléiades system is especially suited for emergency response and change detection.
