Twenty First Century Aerospace Technology Co. (21AT) released the first in-orbit images acquired from its recently launched TripleSat Constellation of three identical optical satellites capable of providing one-meter native ground sampling distance (GSD) panchromatic and four-meter GSD multispectral images, with a 24-kilometer swath width.

Launched on July 10, 2015, TripleSat-1, 2 and 3 were injected into the same 651-kilometer orbit one quarter of a second apart. All three satellites have been moved using on-board propulsion to their designated orbital positions 33 minutes behind each other. The constellation can target any point on Earth’s surface at least once per day.
