High Resolution
Spot 6-7

SPOT 6 and SPOT 7 constellation offers optical products of high spatial and temporal resolution. Big areas may be acquired in short term lapses.

Main features:

  • Daily revisits to any point on the globe
  • 1.5-metre-resolution natural-color products, orthorectified as standard
  • 60-km wide imaging swath
  • Multi-year coverage of entire national territories
  • Regional and National coverage record time
  • Ability to accommodate last-minute tasking requests
  • SPOT 6 and SPOT 7 assure continuity of high-resolution data services through to 2024
  • Catalogue and Tasking available Imagery


Highly Responsive:

  • Instant Tasking, available 24/7 via Geostore
  • The tasking plan is updated every 4 hours to accommodate urgent requests and crisis management.
  • The satellites’ agility keeps acquisition conflicts to a minimum and allows them to switch targets in record time.
  • Automatic production ensures products are quickly available—less than 1 hour after data are downlinked to the receiving station.
