GeoEye-2 Satellite Sensor
As of February 2013, following the merger of GeoEye and DigitalGlobe, GeoEye-2 will be held in storage until needed. GeoEye's next satellite the third-generation satellite capable of discerning objects on the Earth's surface as small as 34cm (13.4 inch) in the panchromatic or black-and-white mode. It will collect multispectral or color imagery at 1.36-meter (54 inch) resolution. GeoEye-2 will have the highest resolution of any commercial imaging system. This advanced resolution will offer customers unprecedented, precise views for mapping, change detection and image analysis.
GeoEye-2 will be of the same general class as GeoEye-1 launched on September 6th, 2008 (Article: GeoEye-1 Satellite Sensor Launch) and became commercially available on February 5th, 2009. Besides unsurpassed spatial resolution, GeoEye-2 will offer exceptional geolocation accuracy, which means that customers will be able to map natural and man-made features to better than 5-meter CE90 (specification) and 3- to 4-meter CE90 (expected) of their actual location on the Earth’s surface without ground control points.GeoEye-2 will make 15 orbits per day flying at an altitude of 681 km (423 miles), with an orbital velocity of 7.5 km/sec (16,800 mile/hour). GeoEye-2 will be able to “revisit” any point on the globe every three days or sooner, depending upon the required look angle. GeoEye-2 customers will have a choice of ordering BASIC (satellite projection), Geo (geometrically corrected), GeoProfessional (terrain corrected or ortho-rectified), or GeoStereo (stereo pair) products, as well as imagery-derived products, including Digital Elevation Models (DEMs), Digital Surface Models (DSMs), large-area mosaics and feature maps.
