WorldView-2


The WorldView-2 system offers industry-leading accuracy, agility, capacity and spectral diversity.

WorldView-2, launched October 2009, is the first high-resolution 8-band multispectral commercial satellite. Operating at an altitude of 770 kilometres, WorldView-2 acquires with 46 cm* panchromatic resolution and 1.84 metre* multispectral resolution. WorldView-2 has an average revisit time of 1.1 days and is capable of collecting up to 975,000 square kilometres per day.

Very high resolution

  • 46 cm* panchromatic at nadir
  • 52 cm at 20° off-nadir

The most spectral diversity commercially available

  • 1.84 m* resolution at nadir
  • 4 standard colors: blue, green, red, near-IR1
  • 4 new colors: coastal, yellow, red edge, and near-IR2

Industry-leading geolocation accuracy

  • High capacity over a broad range of collection types
  • 16.4 km width imaging swath (wider than any competitor)
  • Bi-directional scanning
  • Rapid retargeting using Control Moment Gyros
  • Single-pass stereo collection
  • 2199 gigabits on-board storage
  • 800 Mbps X-band data downlink

Frequent revisits at high resolution enabled by higher altitude

  • 1.1 days at 1 m GSD or less
  • 3.7 days at 20° off-nadir or less (52 cm GSD)

* Commercial imagery is resampled to 50 cm or 2 metres
