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.
