GeoEye-1 Launch Announcement

GeoEye-1 is set to launch on August 22, 2008 and it looks like this satellite is going to surpass the imaging capabilities of IKONOS and QuickBird. We on the commercial side will get half meter resolution while the DoD folks get about 16 inches with a return time of <3 days. It will also collect in three camera modes, panchromatic only, multispectral, and then simultanious panchromatic and multispectral (pan-sharpened). It looks like it will also collect in stereo...

Hopefully, data on the commercial side will be affordable or at least help to drive its competitors to lower their prices! Visit the GeoEye website for more details...
