Pléiades Neo 4 is the second of four satellites of the Pléiades Neo constellation to be launched. Entirely funded, manufactured, owned and operated by Airbus, Pléiades Neo is a breakthrough in Earth observation domain.
With 30 cm native resolution, best-in-class geolocation accuracy and twice-a-day revisit, the four Pléiades Neo satellitesunlock new possibilities with ultimate reactivity. Thanks to these state-of-the-art satellites, each step of the acquisition and delivery cycle offers top-level Earth observation services now and going forward for the next ten years. In addition, their reactive tasking ability allows urgent acquisitions 30 to 40 minutes following request – which is five times higher than previous constellations – and respond to the most critical situations in near real-time, very useful for natural disaster.
The Pléiades Neo constellation is 100% commercially available and will provide institutional and commercial customer’s needs. Images captured by Pléiades Neo will be streamed into the OneAtlas on-line platform, allowing customers to have immediate data access, analytics and correlation with Airbus’ unique archive of optical and radar data.
- Pléiades Neo 4 will be the second satellite to be launched by Arianespace for Airbus Defence and Space Intelligence as an operator. There is one additional Airbus Defence and Space Intelligence mission, for two satellites to be launched on Vega C in the Arianespace backlog.
- Pléiades Neo 4 will be the 133rd Airbus Defence and Space satellite to be launched by Arianespace. There are currently 18 Airbus satellites in Arianespace’s backlog. In addition, Airbus is involved in the construction of the OneWeb satellites being deployed by Arianespace.
