Pleiades is a two-spacecraft constellation of CNES, introducing advanced technologies in Earth observation. Starting with the first launch in 2011, the Pleiades program follows the SPOT program satellite series services.

The identical twin satellites deliver very-high optical resolution (0.5m resolution) and offer a daily revisit capability to any point on the globe.
