New High-Resolution Imagery in Image Hunter – Color 90-cm OVS-3!

Apollo Mapping is on a roll, adding new satellites to our already extensive archive on Image Hunter. Our newest addition – which is the 53rd dataset in Image Hunter – is Orbita Video Satellite-3 (OVS-3) operated by Orbita Aerospace. With 90-cm color resolution, OVS-3 fills a gap in the commercial sector for near 1-meter imagery.

OVS-3 offers natural color imagery, and its video collection capability sets it apart from its competition. Natural color video is collected at 90-cm with 25 frames per second (fps). With near 1-meter resolution, OVS-3 is deal for mapping and monitoring projects as it is an affordable solution for large-scale collections and your video needs.
