The WorldView-1 satellite was launched on 18 September 2007 and became the world's first 50 cm resolution commercial imaging satellite.
WorldView-1 circles the earth in a 496 km, 98 degree sun-synchronous orbit, which provides consistent 2 day revisit to areas of interest at mid-latitudes.
WorldView-1 carries a panchromatic only instrument to produce black and white imagery. The spectral response band includes both visible and near infrared light for maximum sensitivity. WorldView-1's panchromatic band is centred at 650nm with the minimum lower band edge at 400nm and the maximum upper band edge at 900nm.
