Features

SPOT 6 was launched on September 9, 2012 while SPOT 7 proposed launch is in the year of 2013. They form a constellation of Earth-imaging satellites designed to provide continuity of high-resolution, wide-swath data up to 2023. EADS Astrium took the decision to build this constellation in 2009 on the basis of a perceived government need for this kind of data. Spot Image, a subsidiary of Astrium, is funding the satellites alone and owns the system (satellites and ground segments).
