With the current SPOT 6/7 satellites, we continue a long history of data delivery started 30 years ago with the launch of the original SPOT 1 satellite in 1986. Today the archive imagery gives you access to unique historical high resolution data collected over the last decade and spanning over billions of km². SPOT 6/7 secure data continuity will be until 2025 and 2027 respectively.
A SPOT satellite acquisition covers large areas in a single pass at resolutions up to 1.5m. Such precise coverage is ideal for applications at national and regional scales and best suited for mapping, agriculture and land administration applications. SPOT 6 and SPOT 7 operate in an 180-degree phased orbit, allowing for daily revisit anywhere on Earth. The satellite's large swath enables a daily acquisition capacity of 3 Million km² per satellite. Our extensive and attractive One Tasking offer, jointly optimised with our Pléiades satellites, allows you to select the service that is most suitable for your specific requirements and project schedules. Offering an ideal trade-off between coverage, resolution and speed, Pléiades products are especially useful for applications in defence, civil protection, hazard management, urban mapping, precision agriculture and network and infrastructure administration.
Did you know?
SPOT 6/7 are operated on the same orbit with the very-high-resolution Pléiades satellites (50cm imagery), as a 4-satellite constellation: an ideal combination of detail and broad coverage, with intraday revisit to any point on Earth and image availability within hours.
- Stereo and tri-stereo capacity
- Daily revisit anywhere
- Maximum acquisition capacity of 3 Million km² per day per satellite
- Ideal for 1:25,000 topographic mapping: Feature extraction (2D & 3D stereo plotting, geometric accuracy down to 1.2m CE90, elevation and contour lines)

Detection and Observation of Toxic Gulfweed using SPOT 6/7The gorgeous island of Martinique in the Eastern Caribbean Sea has been hit by a plague, called sargasse. This toxic and pestilential gulfweed has been increasingly polluting the beaches of the island since 2011.
Simplot Relies on Airbus to Deliver Valuable Agronomy to Their FarmersSimplot and Airbus jointly developed a scalable, automated system to collect, process, analyse and digitally display satellite imagery from Pléiades and SPOT 6/7.
The Great Mosaic of Loire-AtlantiqueAirbus has sponsored the installation of a huge SPOT 6/7 mosaic in the entrance hall of the Loire-Atlantique Departmental Agency, providing an original and entertaining way to see an area of around 6,880km².
