Collection scenarios (30° off-nadir angle):

  • Long strip: 360 × 15,2 km
  • Large Area Collect: 112 × 44 km
  • Multiple Point Targets: 15,4 × 15,4 km
  • Stereo Area Collect: 224 × 28 km

Benefits:

  • Highly detailed imagery for mapping, change detection and in-depth image analysis;
  • Geolocate features to less than 5 m to create maps in remote areas, maximizing the utility of available resources;
  • Frequent update of imagery;
  • Stereoscopic collection on a single pass provides image continuity and consistency of quality.
