GeoEye-2 Satellite Sensor (0.34m)
As of February 2013, following the merger of GeoEye and DigitalGlobe, GeoEye-2 satellite sensor will be held in storage until needed. DigitalGlobe'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 (4.46 feet) 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. The altitude could be revised before launch to utilize the recently obtained permission to acquire and deliver 0.25m resolution Imagary.
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.
Resolution restrictions have been relaxed
During June 2014 DigitalGlobe received permission from the US Department of Commerce to collect and sell imagery at the best available resolutions. Additionally, six months after WorldView-3 is operational DigitalGlobe will be permitted to sell imagery at up to 25 cm panchromatic and 1.0 m multispectral GSD. We applaud the US Government’s relaxation of satellite resolution restrictions, as it benefits our customers, and the industry in general.

Satellites Currently Operated by DigitalGlobe
Rush tasking orders for satellite image data around the world are accepted in support of live events, natural disasters, global security, and various other applications in which FAST delivery of image data is critical. In most instances, we can provide image data within 24 hours after the initial data has been acquired and delivered via FTP and DVD media. A Spanish version is also available at http://www.satimagingcorp.es.
