Pléiades 1B starts Commercial Collections

by Santosh Singh

Launched on 2nd December 2012, Pleiades 1B, the twin counterpart of Pleiades 1A, has finally completed the commissioning phase. The satellite sensor is now operating normally.

Pleiades 1A and Pleiades 1B form a true constellation that offers more frequent revisit opportunity that any other satellite constellation in it category. The Pléiades constellation is designed to obtain data in double-quick time:

Ability to acquire imagery anywhere in the world in less than 24 hrs. in response to a crisis or natural disaster.
Regular monitoring, as often as every day if required.
Three satellite work plans a day ensure easy handling of last-minute tasking requests.
Twice the coverage and twice the chance of obtaining cloud-free imagery.

What to expect from this development?

1. Shorter acquisition feasibilities
2. Quicker reaction time
3. Good for change detection
