Maxar owns and operates the most agile and sophisticated constellation of high-resolution commercial Earth imaging satellites, with daily image capacity of more than three million square kilometers, ensuring currency as well as continuously enriching the world’s largest image library. Maxar is the first company to deliver 30cm resolution imagery, providing clearer, richer images that empower informed decision-making.
WorldView-1, launched in September 2007, is the first Maxar next-generation satellite – the most agile satellite ever flown commercially. The high-capacity, panchromatic imaging system features half-meter resolution imagery.
WorldView-2, launched October 2009, is the first high-resolution 8-band multispectral commercial satellite. Operating at an altitude of 770km, WorldView-2 provides 46cm panchromatic resolution and 1.85 meter multispectral resolution.
WorldView-3 is the first multi-payload, super-spectral, high-resolution commercial satellite. Operating at an expected altitude of 617km, WorldView-3 provides 31cm panchromatic resolution, 1.24m multispectral resolution, and 3.7m short-wave infrared resolution.
GeoEye-1 set the standard for sub-half meter high-resolution commercial satellite imagery and offers unprecedented spatial resolution. It creates this accuracy by simultaneously acquiring 0.41-meter panchromatic and 1.65-meter multispectral imagery.
