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.
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.
