With SPOT 6 and SPOT 7, Astrium Geo is introducing a complete new design for the product line of the SPOT series. Thanks to many improvements in both space and ground segments, special efforts have been made to make this new product line much easier to handle, moving forward the standard of satellite imagery to a new era. With these sensors Astrium is not only securing  mission continuity of the SPOT series, which has been collecting an archive of more than 30 million of scenes since 1986: this new generation of optical satellites also features technological improvements and advanced system performance that increase turn-around time and acquisition capacity as well as simplification of data access.

SPOT-6 was successfully launched on September 9, 2012. The technical commissioning of the satellite was successfully completed with the system provider, Astrium Satellites, on December 14, 2012. All the satellite functions and performances are nominal, in some cases even exceeding specifications.

SPOT 6 and SPOT 7 will provide 1.5 meter resolution products over broad areas until 2024.
