Get A New Price List! Introducing New High-Resolution Satellite Imagery: SkySat, SuperView-1 and TeLEOS-1!

You definitely need a new price list as we have been busier than ever with the steady addition of new satellites to our archive, thanks in no small part to our two rock-star developers who’ve hit the ground running. Our last announcements of new satellite were mostly focused on medium resolution data, so it is with great excitement that we announce the addition of three new high-resolution options to our already unparalleled database of imagery!

Apollo Mapping clients meet SuperView-1 and SkySat, with resolutions of 50-centimeters (cm) and 72-cm respectively. Between the two satellites we’ve drastically increased our global coverage in the high-resolution space and have no plans of stopping there.

In fact, we’re also introducing a third satellite option this month, TeLEOS-1, with 1-m resolution and a near equatorial orbit. Why does this matter? As some of you may know, the areas of the world near and on the Equator are quite often the worst places on Earth to find imagery. Consistent cloud cover in tropical areas and persistent haze in others makes finding imagery all the more difficult in the equatorial belt. With the addition of TeLEOS-1, you’ll now have yet another option when searching for imagery in our already unmatched archive!

Here are a few of the key specifications of our three new satellites:

SuperView-1:

  • Launch Date: 01/02 satellites, December 26, 2016, 03:23 UTC; 03/04 satellites, January 9, 2018, 03:26 UTC
  • Sensor resolution: At-nadir – 50-cm panchromatic & 2-m multispectral (Blue, Green, Red, and NIR)

SkySat:

  • Launch Date: August 19th, 2014
  • Sensor resolution: At-nadir – 72 cm panchromatic & 1-m multispectral (Blue, Green, Red, and NIR)

TeLEOS:

  • Launch Date: December 16th, 2015
  • Sensor Resolution: At-nadir – 1-m panchromatic
  • Orbital Range: 15N to 15S ­­­­
