SPOT-6 and 7 ensure the data continuity with the no longer operational SPOT-5 satellite. SPOT-6 (launched 2012) and SPOT-7 (launched 2014) provide an archive of very high resolution optical acquisition as well as the possibility to task the satellites for new acquisitions.
The optical system is one instrument made of 3 identical Korsch telescopes, each with a 200 mm aperture delivering a 60km swath at Nadir.
The ortho-products are automatically generated by the SPOT-6 and 7 ground segment, based on SRTM database or Reference3D when available. The projection available for SPOT-6 and 7 ortho-products is UTM, datum WGS84. SPOT-6 and 7 products are available in the following modes:
Resolution: 6 to 1.5 metres
Data Set Specifications
Primary, ortho and tailored ortho
