WorldView Legion satellites 1 and 2 have now been launched into orbit during April 2024 at the Vandenberg Space Force Base in California, USA. These will be the first two of six WorldView Legion satellites, providing the highest resolution commercially available at the time of the development. Developed by Maxar, the six satellites will allow the capabilities to capture an area 15 times per day over in-demand areas, more than tripling the current capabilities (Maxar satellites) to collect sub 30cm high-resolution optical imagery and multispectral imagery enabled by its 8-band sensors.

WorldView Legion satellites have a mix between sun-synchronous and mid-inclination orbits, allowing the satellites ability to revisit high-interest areas in times of critical and time-sensitive decisions.

Features and Benefits

  • WorldView Legion satellites 1 and 2 provide 8-band VNIR multispectral imagery for a wide variety of applications.
  • Industry-leading precision geolocation accuracy without ground control points.
  • Ability to capture large mono and stereoscopic collection eliminating the need for temporal variations.
  • WorldView Legion can be flown at a range of altitudes for between 29 and 50cm GSD.
  • Benefits include vegetation classification for invasive species; forestry monitoring for illegal logging; construction monitoring in the urban and mining landscape; greenfield exploration via alteration mineral mapping and rapid updates of digital twins.
