Pléiades

Pléiades is an optical satellite constellation providing very high-resolution products (50cm) with a 20-km swath. Both the space and the ground segment have been designed to provide information in record time, offering daily revisit capacity to any point on the globe and acquisition capabilities tailored to meet the full spectrum of civil and military requirements.

Its sensors capture Blue, Green, Red, and Near Infrared bands, at resolutions of 50 cm for Panchromatic, and 2m for Multispectral.

The Pléiades constellation has been providing color products at 50 cm resolution, delivering an extremely high level of detail since 2012. These products’ location accuracy and excellent image quality make them the ideal solution for precision mapping.

Offering an ideal trade-off between coverage, resolution, and speed, Pleiades products are especially useful for applications in defense, civil protection, hazard management, urban mapping, precision agriculture and network and infrastructure administration.

And some technical specifications related to the ordering process:

Imagery type

Solo

A single image is delivered over your AOI

Stereo

Two images over the area of interest within the same orbital pass. Each of the two images are shot with a different viewing angle within the same orbit,
enabling the creation of 3D models over the area of
interest. Subject to feasibility study
Premium Ortho
Acquisition of stereo or tristereo pairs in order to process a DTM that will be used to orthorectify the Pléiades imagery
Tristereo
Three images over the area of interest within the same orbital pass. Each of the three images are shot with a different viewing angle within the same orbit, enabling the creation of 3D models over the area of interest. The second image is acquired nearly vertically. The near-nadir acquisition minimises the risk of missing hidden items, which makes it ideal for dense urban and mountainous areas. Subject to feasibility study

Geometric processing 

Primary (L1)
Sensor image, not georeferenced or map-
projected. Delivered with RPC file and rigorous model metadata (altitude, ephemeris) allowing geometric processing (orthorectification – DEM extraction)
Projected (L2)Map projected image at a constant altitude
(mean). Delivered with RPC file allowing geometric
processing (orthorectification – DEM extraction)
Ortho (L3)Map projected image corrected from off-nadir
and relief effects (rectified as nadir position through DEM knowledge) and possibly improved with GCP
Radiometric processing
Basic
Digital numbers from the sensor acquisition (native pixel values after equalisation). This option is mainly for proficient users.
Reflectance
Pixel values radiometrically corrected from
sensor calibration and systematic effects of the atmosphere (molecular or ‘Rayleigh’ diffusion).
Display
Image optimised for a direct true colour rendering
on the screen. For users who need ready-to-use images and high aesthetic display.
Band selection
Panchromatic
Black and white (50cm)
Pansharpened 3-band natural color
Panchromatic merged with the Blue, Green and Red bands (50 cm)
Pansharpened 3-band false color
Panchromatic merged with the Green, Red and Near Infrared bands (50 cm)
Pansharpened 4-band
Panchromatic merged with the full set of colour Blue, Green, Red and Near Infrared bands (50cm)
Multispectral 4-band
Full set of colours Blue, Green, Red and Near Infrared bands (2 m)
Bundle
One Panchromatic image (50 cm) + the
Multispectral (2 m - Blue, Green, Red and Near Infrared) bands delivered separately (not merged)

FAQs

Some restrictions do apply when ordering Pleiades data. These are related to the minimum area and minimum order and the following:

- Minimum area of interest is 25km², with at least 500m in one direction.

- Minimum order is €250 for solo imagery, €500 for stereo, and 750€ for tristereo.

In case more than one AOI is required, please contact us for a custom order tailored to your needs.
