Overview & HistoryPléiades 1 SpecificationsPricing

Launched on December 17, 2011 from Guiana Space Centre, Kourou, French Guiana, Pléiades 1A was the first high resolution satellite in the Airbus Defense and Space constellation. Joined by its twin, Pléiades 1B, in space on December 2, 2012 after launching from the same pad, they provide 50-centimeter (cm) panchromatic and 2-meter (m) 4-band multispectral (i.e. blue, green, red and near-infrared/NIR) products with one of the widest footprints of any high resolution satellite at 20 kilometers (km). It should be noted that the native resolution of Pléiades 1A and 1B is 70-cm panchromatic and 2.8-m multispectral before it is processed for delivery.

The Pléiades 1 twins are exceptionally agile with the ability to collect one million square km of high resolution imagery per day per satellite. Featuring daily revisit time to any location on the planet, the Pléiades constellation separates itself from the competition for site monitoring and projects requiring rapid imagery acquisitions.
