Intermediate Resolution
Spot 1-5

The SPOT satellites have been supplying high-resolution, wide-area optical imagery since 1986. The 26-year archive acquired by SPOT 1 through to SPOT 5 contains more images at resolutions of 20 to 2.5 metres and a 2-3 days revisit.

Main Features:

  • 2 – 3 days revisit
  • 2.5m, 5m and 10m Panchromatic resolution
  • 2.5m, 5m, 10m, 20m Multispectral resolution
  • 50cm Pansharpened Multispectral resolution
  • 60-km wide imaging swath
  • 30 million images since 1986
  • Location Accuracy:
    • <30m for SPOT5
    • <350m for SPOT1 to 4
    • <10m for ortho-products

Deimos-1 is ideal for anaysis on large areas with a 22m resolution (multispectral) due to Its wide-swath (600km), low cost, orthorectified format and 3 days revist.

Main features:

  • 2 – 3 revist
  • 22m Multispectral resolution
  • 600-km wide imaging swath and 1300-km large
  • 6000km2 minimum area
  • Catalogue and Tasking available Imagery
  • Almost Real-time delivery

Spectral Bands:

  • B1 : 0,52 – 0,60 µm (Green)
  • B2 : 0,63 – 0,69 µm (Red)
  • B3 : 0,77 – 0,90 µm (Near-infrared)


Almost Real-Time delivery
On the other hand, thanks the Polar Station in the Norwegian Svaldbard Islands data from satellites can be acquisited once the orbit is completed. Deimos-1 System is optimized in order to acquire data on large areas: onboard memory does not compromise the acquisition capacity offering real-time services and processing. Deimos-1 information can be available within 2 hous after acquisition.
