News GeoEye-1 Satellite successfully launched

Satellite Imaging Corporation acquires and processes imagery from the groundbreaking GeoEye-1 satellite sensor. The satellite sensor launched on September 6, 2008.

The GeoEye-1 Satellite sensor was developed by GeoEye and features the most sophisticated technology ever used in a commercial remote sensing system.

GeoEye-1 is capable of acquiring image data at 0.41 meter panchromatic (B&W) and 1.65 meter multispectral resolution. It also features a revisit time of less than three days, as well as the ability to locate an object within just three meters of its physical location.

This newly developed sensor is optimized for large projects, as it can collect over 350,000 square kilometers of pan-sharpened multispectral satellite imagery every day.
