Deimos-2

The Deimos-2 high-resolution satellite, launched by Spain’s Elecnor Deimos, completed in-orbit commissioning and will enter its first operational phase in November 2014.

The Deimos-2 high-resolution satellite, launched by Spain’s Elecnor Deimos, completed in-orbit commissioning and will enter its first operational phase in November 2014. Commercial service is expected to start in January 2015. 

The satellite acquires panchromatic and 4-band multispectral images over a 12-km swath, with pan-sharpened or stereo images with a resolution of 75 cm. Deimos-2 was developed by Elecnor Deimos in collaboration with South Korea’s Satrec-I. The partnership boasts the highest resolution of any fully private satellite in Europe.

During its commissioning to test all operational and imagery collection modes, the satellite has acquired more than 2,000 images. In addition to the standard 12-km swath, the satellite also has a wide-area mode that doubles the swath to 24 km. It is also capable of acquiring stereo pairs in a single path, allowing for the creation of 3D models of the imaged area.

In its test run, the satellite captured a cloud-free image of Madrid of more than 8,000 square kilometers, with a 75-cm pan sharpened mosaic that tested the image processing chain.
