SPOT-7 Satellite Sensor (1.5m)

SPOT-7 satellite sensor built by AIRBUS Defence & Space was successfully launched on June 30, 2014 by a PSLV launcher from the Satish Dhawan Space Center in India.

SPOT-6 and 7 will cover wider areas with a resolution of 1.5 m, Pléiades 1A and 1B will be focused on more targeted zones with a greater level of detail (50 cm products).

SPOT-6 & 7 Constellation

Like its twin, SPOT-7 covers wide areas in record time. With both satellites in orbit, acquisition capacity will be boosted to six million square kilometres per day – an area ten times the size of France.

Phased 180° apart in the same orbit, the SPOT-6 and SPOT-7 genuine constellation, beyond ensuring service continuity from the SPOT family, will now bring new capabilities especially in terms of sharpness, responsiveness and collection capacity:

  • 1.5m resolution suitable for 1:25.000 scale topographic mapping
  • Daily revisits everywhere
  • Wide coverage capacity – Collecting the equivalent of the Earth’s Landmass in just two months

SPOT-6 and SPOT-7 are the de facto solution to cover wide areas in record time, making national maps regular updating as well as thematic map creation possible.
