SPOT-6 satellite joined the Pleiades Constellation and later SPOT-7 in 2014 after proposed launch.
SPOT-6 satellite 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.

Rapid Acquisition/Rush Tasking
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.
