The ALOS Advantage
The Advanced Land Observing Satellite (ALOS) was launched on January 24, 2006 from Tanegashima Space Center, Japan. The satellite was operated by the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA). ALOS’ on-board PRISM sensor was dedicated to collecting panchromatic stereo and tri-stereo imagery at 2.5-meter (m) resolution with a swath width of 35-kilometers.
ALOS was instrumental in mapping the disastrous effects of the 2011 earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan; as well as in the creation of NTT Data’s global DEM product, AW3D. On April 22, 2011, ALOS ceased collecting new imagery when JAXA lost communication with the satellite.
Below is the least expensive, panchromatic ALOS data offered. Prices increase for stereo and data processing. Note that volume discounts are available.
