The SPOT constellation are owned and operated by Airbus Defence and Space and collected image data down to a pixel resolution of 10 m.
SPOT (Satellite Pour l'Observation de la Terre) 1, 2, 3 and 4 are high resolution satellites that were launched in 1986, 1990, 1993 and 1998 respectively. The SPOT constellation are owned and operated by Airbus Defence & Space and collected imagery data down to a pixel resolution of 10m.
Onboard sensors could point across the satellite track, providing a revisit capability of 1-4 days depending on latitude. The satellites captured both panchromatic (black & white) and multispectral (colour) digital imagery.
