Deimos

Mission

blue arrow Series Overview

The Earth imaging satellites Deimos-1 and Deimos-2 are fully owned and operated by Deimos Imaging, an UrtheCast company.

Deimos-1 was launched in July 2009 and remains operational. The mission is fully dedicated to Earth Observation and captures images all around the world. The Deimos-1 system provides capabilities well above and beyond the design goals.

Deimos-2 was launched in June 2014 and remains operational. The mission is the second satellite of the Deimos Earth Observation system, following Deimos-1, and provides mid-resolution, very-wide-swath imagery.

The Deimos series is part of ESA's Third Party Missions Programme.

blue arrow Series Objectives

The objective of the privately funded Deimos series is to provide very-high-resolution data, carry out commercially-focused operational imaging missions, supporting rapid-response, and large-area mapping for a range of applications.

  • TPM LOADS - offers access to Deimos-1 & 2 collections

blue arrow DATA DESCRIPTION

ESA is offering free of charge, for scientific research and application development, access to:

  • DEIMOS-1/2 ESA archive (online access, fast registration)
  • DEIMOS-1/2 Full archive and New Tasking (on demand).
    The Deimos-1 products are available in L1R (Geo Positioned) and L1T (Orthorectified). The Deimos-2 in L1B (native) and L1C (orthorectified) as:
    • Pan Sharpened
    • Panchromatic
    • Multispectral
    • Bundle
    • Stereo Pair

ESA will support as many high-quality and innovative projects as possible within the quota limit available, therefore, for the "on demand" TPM, only a limited amount of products can be made available to each project.
