The two satellites introduce high quality 2.5m Pan and 5m multispectral (4 band) imagery to DMCii’s product range with strip, wide area and stereo pair options available. These very high resolution imagery products will prove ideal for use by professionals in mapping and cartography, business intelligence, urban/transport planning, land cover mapping, forestry and demanding agriculture applications.
The two new satellites will also provide wide area 22m and 32m multispectral data continuity for applications that are already using DMCii’s imagery products throughout the world.
DMCii will distribute the imagery products to all customers outside Africa and customers in Africa will be managed by NASRDA.
