The PlanetScope satellite constellation consists of multiple launches of groups of individual cubesats (DOVEs).
|Orbit Altitude||475 km - 525 km|
|Equator Crossing Time||9:30 - 11:30 am (local solar time)|
The PlanetScope constellation of 130+ DOVE satellites is able to image nearly all Earth's land every day.
The PlanetScope camera on each DOVE cubesat operates currently in eight bands - red edge, red, green, green I, yellow, blue, coastal blue and near infra-red.
|Sensor Type||Three-band frame Imager or four-band frame Imager with a split-frame NIR filter|
(DOVE-C) Four-band frame imager with butcher-block filter providing blue, green, red, and NIR stripes
(DOVE-R) Eight-band frame imager with butcher-block filter providing blue, green, red, red-edge, and NIR stripes (SuperDove)
|Spectral Bands||Coastal Blue: 431 - 452 nm|
Blue: 465 – 515 nm
Green I: 513 - 549 nm
Green: 547 – 583 nm
Yellow: 600 - 620 nm
Red: 650 – 680 nm
RedEdge: 697 – 713 nm
NIR: 845 – 885 nm
|Ground Sample Distance (nadir)||Dove-C: 3.0 m-4.1 m|
Dove-R: 3.0 m-4.1 m
SuperDove: 3.7 m-
|Frame Size||24 km x 8 km (approximate) for DOVE-C|
24 km x 16 km (approximate) for DOVE-R
32.5 km x 19.6 km (approximate) for SuperDove
|Maximum Image Strip per orbit||20,000 km2|
|Revisit Time||Daily at nadir|
|Image Capture Capacity||200 million km2/day|
ESA is offering, for scientific research and application development, access to data from the full archive of the PlanetScope missions upon submission and acceptance of a project proposal. These products are available as part of the Planet imagery offer.
ESA will support as many high-quality and innovative projects as possible within the quota limit available, therefore only a limited amount of products can be made available to each project.
The following data collections are available:
|PlanetScope Basic Scene Product||Scaled Top of Atmosphere Radiance (at sensor) and sensor corrected product.|
The Basic Scene product is designed for users with advanced image processing and geometric correction capabilities.
This product has scene based framing and is not projected to a cartographic projection.
Radiometric and sensor corrections applied to the data.
|PlanetScope Ortho Scene Product||Orthorectified, scaled Top of Atmosphere Radiance (at sensor) or Surface Reflectance image product suitable for analytic and visual applications.|
This product has scene based framing and is projected to a cartographic projection.
|PlanetScope Ortho Tile Product||Radiometric and sensor corrections applied to the data. Imagery is orthorectified and projected to a UTM projection.||Level 3B|
