An overview of the very high-resolution Pleaides satellites

16 Dec 2021

The 17 December 2021 marks the 10 year anniversary of the Pléiades programme, which consists of a constellation of very high resolution satellites owned by CNES and operated by Airbus Defence and Space.

The mission is part of ESA's Third Party Missions programme, in which ESA has an agreement to distribute products from the satellites.

To celebrate the occasion, we produced an infographic to summarise the achievements of the Pléiades constellation.
