Pleiades 1B in Orbit, 24 hour Revisit Soon Available

Monday, December 3rd 2012
By Adena Schutzberg

On Saturday a Soyuz rocket carried Pleiades 1B into space. The French space agency is the lead and the French defense and intelligence services will be a key beneficiary, as will civilian users. The imageyr, with additional ground processing, will have a resolution of 50 centimeters, a bit less than 20 inches.

Along with its twin "A" the pair will provide 24 hour revisit times for all locations on earth by spring 2013. It is expected to rival the U.S. satellite imagery providers GeoEye and DigitalGlobe, which are expected to complete merger this month.
