WorldView-2, launched in 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-2 has an average revisit time of 1.1 days and is capable of collecting up to 1 million square kilometers of 8-band imagery per day, greatly enhancing the Maxar multispectral collection capacity for more rapid and reliable collection.

The WorldView-2 system, offering incredible accuracy, agility, capacity and spectral diversity, allows Maxar to substantially expand its imagery product offerings to both commercial and government customers.
