WorldView-3 Satellite Sensor
DigitalGlobe's next satellite WorldView-3 is in a phased development process for an advanced fourth-generation satellite scheduled to launch in mid-2014 and will offer 0.31 meter resolution panchromatic and eight-band multi-spectral imagery.

WorldView-3 Satellite Sensor (0.31m)
The WorldView-3 satellite sensor was recently licensed by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to collect eight-band short-wave infrared (SWIR) imagery. The satellite is expected to launch mid August.

WorldView-3 will be the first multi-payload, super-spectral, high-resolution commercial satellite sensor operating at an expected altitude of 617 km. WorldView-3 provides 31 cm panchromatic resolution, 1.24 m multispectral resolution, 3.7 m short wave infrared resolution and 30 m CAVIS resolution. WorldView-3 has an average revisit time of <1 day and is capable of collecting up to 680,000 km2 per day.
WorldView-3 will bear a strong resemblance to WorldView-2 launched on October 8, 2009 in terms of its performance characteristics. The WorldView-3 satellite sensor will benefit from significant improvements including cost savings, risk reduction, and faster delivery for its customers.
Lockheed Martin Commercial Launch Services has set the launch date for DigitalGlobe’s WorldView-3 remote sensing satellite for Aug. 13, 2014. The spacecraft will launch aboard an Atlas 5 from Space Launch Complex 3E at Vandenberg Air Force Base, Calif. The altitude could be revised before launch to utilize the recently obtained permission to acquire and deliver 0.25m resolution Imagary.
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.

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.
