WorldView – 4 Satellite Sensor (0.31m)

This was previously named as GeoEye-2 and now it is introduced as WorldView-4. WorldView-4 is the successor of worldView-3 and is a planned third generation Earth Observation Satellite launched in November, 2016. This is capable of giving a maximum resolution of 0.31m which is similar to imagery as Worldview – 3 and the highest resolution commercially available at present.

The spacecraft’s telescope is called the GeoEye Imaging System-2, designed and built by ITT Corporation. The Satellite will provide panchromatic images at a highest resolution of 0.31 meters per pixel (12.2 in/px), and multispectral images at 1.24 meters per pixel (48.8 in/px). Multispectral imagery is available in red, green, blue and near-infrared channels. Worldview-4 is operating at an altitude of 617 km in coordinating with WorldView-3. This provides Simultaneous, high resolution, multi-spectral imageries, large area single-pass (synoptic) collection eliminated temporal variations, Precision geo-location possible without ground control points and Global capacity of 680,000 km2 per day as its magnificent benefits. Sensor bands will comprise panchromatic and 4 multispectral bands. The swath width is 13.1km at nadir. The Satellite is planned to revisit at a frequency of less than one day.

GeoEye-1 Satellite Sensor (0.46m)

The GeoEye-1 satellite sensor was successfully launched on September 6, 2008. The satellite, which was launched at Vanderberg Air Force Base, California, provides a resolution of 0.46 meters. The GeoEye-1 Satellite sensor features the most sophisticated technology ever used in a commercial remote sensing system. This newly developed sensor is optimized for large projects, as it can collect over 350,000 square kilometers of pan-sharpened multispectral satellite imagery every day.

GeoEye-1, launched in September 2008, has been flying at an altitude of about 681 kilometers and is capable of producing imagery with a ground sampling distance of 46 centimeters, meaning it can detect objects of that diameter or greater.
During late summer of 2013 the orbit altitude of the GeoEye-1 Satellite sensor was raised to 770 Km / 478 Miles. GeoEye-1 new nadir ground sample distance (GSD) is 46cm compared to the previous GSD of 41cm.

WorldView – 2 Satellite Sensor (0.46m)

Maxar’s WorldView-2 satellite sensor, launched October 8, 2009, provides 0.46m Panchromatic (B&W) mono and stereo satellite image data. With its improved agility, WorldView-2 is able to act like a paintbrush, sweeping back and forth to collect very large areas of multispectral imagery in a single pass. WorldView-2 alone is able to collect nearly 1 million km2 every day, doubling the collection our constellation to nearly 2 million km2 per day. 

And the combination of WorldView-2’s increased agility and high altitude enables it to typically revisit any place on earth in 1.1 days. When added to the satellite constellation, revisit time drops below one day and never exceeds two days, providing the most same-day passes of any commercial high resolution constellation.

The WorldView-2 imaging payload is the second such system engineered and manufactured by ITT Space Systems Division for Maxar. Once deployed, it will operate at an altitude of 770 kilometers, and the advanced on-board imaging system will capture pan-sharpened, multispectral images (with better than 0.46-meter resolution) from almost 500 miles above the Earth. These images supply unprecedented detail and geospatial accuracy, further expanding the applications for satellite imagery in both commercial and government markets. Added spectral diversity provides the ability to perform precise change detection and mapping.
In addition to numerous other technical improvements, WorldView-2 also has the ability to accommodate direct tasking, which will allow select customers around the world to load imaging profiles directly up to the spacecraft and execute delivery of the data directly down to their own ground stations.

Elevation Products

Maxar’s Advanced Elevation products provide the highest quality digital elevation models (DEMs), available off-the-shelf or custom-built. These models are GIS ready. Therefore you need not to focus on processing. You can focus on your analysis. With global coverage and options for accuracy and resolution, these models can be used in a very effective way. Traditional satellite imagery provides only 2D vision on the ground. But the world is a three-dimensional place, and 2D imagery only shows part of the picture.

Our elevation models enable you to measure and analyze your project in 3D to make your work more worthwhile. Maxar’s’s elevation models are a key component in a variety of geospatial applications like in construction planning, disaster modeling, hazard assessment, telco applications, volumetrics and change detection, lithology, geology and geophysics analysis.
