The TeLEOS-1 Advantage

Near Equatorial Orbit
Instead of a sun-synchronous obit, TeLEOS-1 orbits near the equator, giving it the upper hand with an average revisit time of 12 to 16 hours to locations in the Tropics.

Panchromatic Imagery
TeLEOS-1 keeps the cost down and minimizes data storage by providing 1-m panchromatic-only imagery.

Overview & HistoryTeLEOS-1 SpecificationsPricing

TeLEOS-1 was launched by ST Electronics, a Singapore company, on December 16, 2015. It’s equipped with a 1-meter (m) resolution panchromatic sensor. TeLEOS-1 travels in a near equatorial orbit so it captures imagery only within the Tropics. What it lacks in global coverage it makes up in a rapid revisit rate of 12 to 16 hours, including multiple visits per day to most locations it can access.

The equatorial region is a hive of shipping activity, mining and clouds, making it an ideal focus for the geographically-targeted minisatellite. TeLEOS-1 appeals to companies and organization who need fast response times in the Tropics at an affordable price.
