OHS Offers Hyperspectral Satellite Imagery Like Nothing Before! Order Now!

Apollo Mapping is teaming up with Zhuhai Orbita Aerospace Science and Technology Co. Ltd., also known as Orbita, to bring medium-resolution OHS hyperspectral imagery to our clients.

A 10-m OHS image of Extremadura, Spain collected on July 15, 2018. This image uses bands 12 – 8 – 4 (i.e. red – green – blue) to create a natural color view of the landscape, and has been processed by Apollo Mapping for improved clarity and colors. (Image Credit: Orbita)

Orbita Hyperspectral Satellite (OHS) collects hyperspectral imagery at 10-meter resolution in the 400-nanometer (nm) to 1,000-nm (from blue to near-infrared) spectral range. OHS is the only commercial satellite constellation offering hyperspectral imagery, setting these microsats apart from their competitors. Their large, 150-kilometer footprint and 32 spectral bands open access to new avenues for mapping land use change along with disaster relief, spectral analysis, assessing plant health and so much more!

Orbita is continuously adding to their constellation of microsats, accruing a cache of archive imagery. With eight OHS satellites currently in orbit, each collecting 5,000,000 square kilometers a day, Orbita’s archive is ever-expanding.

Here is a quick summary of OHS’ specifications:

  • Resolution: 10-meter
  • Footprint width: 150-kilometers
  • Spectral band: 32-bands from 400-nm to 1,000-nm, download detailed band information here
  • Daily collection capability per satellite: 5,000,000 square kilometers
