Pléiades Neo

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.

MAXAR

GeoEye-1

Ideal for large-scale mapping projects, GeoEye-1 provides highly detailed imagery at .46-meter panchromatic and 1.84-meter multispectral resolutions. It can geolocate features to less than 5m, offers stereoscopic collection on a single pass, and can revisit any point on Earth once every three days.

Airbus

SPOT-6/7

The SPOT twins operate in phased orbits and can revisit any point on the globe once per day. They deliver 1.5-meter high-resolution imagery across five spectral bands and can capture 6 million square kilometers per satellite per day.

When we need high-resolution satellite imagery, we trust Pacgeo for their quality imagery and reliable turnaround times. ​

Ordering high-res satellite imagery through a partner agency order desk was always painful and fraught with multiple issues. Dealing directly with Pacgeo allows me to bypass the aforementioned issues, while getting quick and reliable access to the data I need.
