Spot 6 – 7

 

With Spot 6 and Spot 7 Airbus Defence and Space (DS) not only secures mission continuity of its Spot series, which has collected an of more than 30 million scenes since 1986. This new generation of optical satellites features technological improvements and advanced system performance that increase reactivity and acquisition capacity as well as simplifying data access. Spot 6 and Spot 7 products are used in the acquisition of geographical data to any GIS analysis and assessment of natural and environmental phenomena.
