Our multi-resolution Virtual Constellation of more than 30 satellites gives us unrestricted coverage of the whole of the Earth’s surface. It’s possible thanks to our strategic partners along with our own satellites: Deimos 1 and Deimos 2. We use our integrated tasking system to optimise the mission planning for all the satellites in our fleet, before quality checking and post processing the data we receive to give you high-quality images, fast.

Your satellite questions answered.
What's resolution and which resolution do I need?
Resolution describes how much of the Earth’s surface is covered by one pixel of an image. So, for a 22 m resolution image, each pixel represents 22 m2. Different resolutions will suit different applications – take a look at our Imagery page for more information..
What are bands?
Spectral bands are a way of categorising the type of light a satellite’s sensors record. Most use 4-5 bands. Single band or ‘panchromatic’ produces greyscale images, while four multispectral bands (Red, Green, Blue and NIR (near-infrared) together produce colour images.
Which bands do I need?
Because different band combinations have different resolutions, the resolution you need for your application will influence your choice of bands. Please visit our imagery page to find out more about resolution or contact us so we can help you find the best imagery for you.
What's temporal resolution?
After a satellite captures a location, temporal resolution describes the time it takes for another satellite to be in position to re-capture exactly the same area a second time. Temporal resolution depends on the number of satellites and the resolution needed.
Our Operated Satellites
Deimos 2 satellite
A very-high-resolution, agile and cost-effective satellite that provides 75cm/pixel pan-sharpened imagery with a 12km swath. *Launch Date: June 19, 2014 *Lifespan: 10 years *Avg. Revisit Time: 2 days *Agility: ±45° off nadir Spectral Bands: – PAN 560-900nm – Blue 466-525nm – Green 532-599nm – Red 640-697nm – NIR 770-892nm
Deimos 1 satellite
Captures 22m-resolution imagery with a very wide 650 km swath. Specifically designed to cover large areas very frequently, it’s ideally suited for applications such as precision agriculture and forestry monitoring. * Launch date : July 29, 2009 * Avg. revisit time: 3 days * Agility: Fixed, Nadir-oriented Spectral bands: – Green 520-600 nm – Red 630-690 nm – NIR 770-900 nm * A synthetic Blue band can be generated to produce natural color imagery
