CG Satellite recently added nine new Jilin-1 ‘birds’ to their existing arsenal of high-resolution satellites. For the first time, they are offering a 50-centimeter (cm) resolution, 4-band product from their new KF01B satellite. They also added three new video and nighttime satellites with 1.2-meter (m) resolution and natural color. In their GF series, CG Satellite added five new 75-cm and 1-m resolution ‘birds’ to their existing constellation.
The swath width for the new GF satellites is 40-kilometers and then the KF series has an astonishing 136-kilmeter wide swath. CG Satellite continues to expand its robust archive and collection capabilities, filling a gap in the sub-meter imagery market.
