The RapidEye Advantage
On August 29, 2008, a cluster of five identical medium-resolution satellites known as the RapidEye constellation was launched from Baikonur Cosmodrome, Kazakhstan, and reached an orbital height of 630 kilometers (km). The constellation features 6.5-meter resolution, 5-band multispectral (or blue, green, red, red edge and near-infrared/NIR) imagery.
With a wide footprint, five satellites and daily revisits, the RapidEye constellation has amassed more than 14 billion sq km of medium resolution imagery to date. Able to image 4 million sq km per day, or an area over twice as large as Mexico, the RapidEye constellation can support regional and even countrywide mapping projects.
As of December 31, 2019, RapidEye has been decommissioned and is therefore no longer collecting new 5-m imagery.
Below is the least expensive RapidEye data offered. Prices increase for new collections and data processing. Note that academic and volume discounts are available.
