Pleiades is a two-spacecraft constellation of CNES, introducing advanced technologies in EO. Starting with the first launch in 2011, the Pleiades programme follows the SPOT satellite series services. The identical twin satellites deliver very-high optical resolution imagery (0.5 m) and offer a daily revisit capability to any point on the globe. The collection is composed of the copy of products requested by ESA supported projects over their areas of interest around the world. Access is provided through the ESA TPM scheme. Read more
