Pleiades Neo is the latest, most advanced optical constellation of four identical high-resolution satellites in the Airbus fleet. In a sun-synchronous orbit at an altitude of 620 km, these satellites have a collection capacity of up to 2 million sq km per day. With a 30 cm panchromatic and 1.2 m multispectral resolution, the Pleiades Neo satellites are capable of intra-day revisits to optimize reactivity with todays global challenges.
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.
