Product Description

SPOT 6 and 7

SPOT-6&7 satellite sensors were built by AIRBUS Defence & Space. They are optical imaging satellites capable of imaging the Earth with a resolution of 1.5 metre panchromatic and 6 metres multispectral (blue, green, red, near-IR). This satellite imagery will offer imaging products to customers in defence, agriculture, deforestation, environmental monitoring, coastal surveillance, engineering, oil, gas and mining industries.

Both ground and space segments have been designed for improved performances compared to previous SPOT missions, especially in term of reactivity from satellite tasking to product delivery and collection capacity. The constellation SPOT-6 and SPOT-7 will provide a daily revisit everywhere on Earth with a total coverage of 6 million km² per day.
