About the SPOT-6 Satellite Sensor
SPOT-6 satellite built by Astrium was successfully launched on September 9, 2012 by a PSLV launcher from the Satish Dhawan Space Center in India.
SPOT-6 is an optical imaging satellite capable of imaging the Earth with a resolution of 1.5 meter Panchromatic and 6 meter Multispectral (Blue, Green, Red, Near-IR) and will offer imaging products to customers in defense, agriculture, deforestation, environmental monitoring, coastal surveillance, engineering, oil, gas and mining industries.
SPOT-6 and SPOT-7 will ensure service continuity of SPOT- 4 and SPOT-5 satellites, which have been operating since 1998 and 2002. Moreover, both ground and space segments have been designed for improved performances compared to previous SPOT missions, especially in term of reactivity from satellite tasking to product delivery and collection capacity. The constellation SPOT-6 and SPOT-7 will actually provide a daily revisit everywhere on Earth with a total coverage of 6 million km² per day. SPOT-6 and 7 will have a service life of 10 years.
