SPOT-6 and 7
The SPOT earth observation system designed by CNES and operated by Spot Image, has been in operation since February 1986. SPOT 6 and 7 form an Earth observation constellation, together with Pleiades satellites, improving imaging capacities to its predecessor SPOT-5, but ensuring SPOT data continuity with their 60km swath.
SPOT 6 and 7 now offer a 1.5m resolution in natural colour, a daily revisit to any point of the globe and can be programmed for stereo and tristereo acquisitions for 3D terrain modelling.
