PLÉIADES SATELLITE IMAGERY
The Pléiades constellation is composed of two synchronous optical satellites, Pléiades-1A and Pléiades-1B, which were successfully launched on December 16, 2011. Each satellite sits 180 degrees apart in the same orbit, and work in conjunction with each other to allow a daily revisit to any location on the planet, increasing the chances of obtaining a cloud-free image.
The constellation can obtain imagery in three forms: Panchromatic, Multi-Spectral and Orthorectified Colour Data.
