SPOT-5 Satellite Sensor (2.5m/5m) - Decommissioned

The SPOT-5 satellite sensor has been decommissioned as of March 31, 2015. SPOT-5 was successfully placed into orbit by an Ariane 4 from the Guiana Space Centre in Kourou during the night of 3 to 4 May 2002. Archived SPOT-5 Satellite Imagery will remain available.

Thanks to SPOT-5's improved 5-meter and 2.5-meter resolution and wide imaging swath, which covers 60 x 60 km or 60 km x 120 km in twin-instrument mode, the SPOT-5 satellite provides an ideal balance between high resolution and wide-area coverage. SPOT-5 Satellite sensor was decommissioned on March 31, 2015.

Compared to its predecessors, SPOT-5 satellite offered greatly enhanced capabilities, which provided additional cost-effective imaging solutions. The coverage offered by SPOT-5 was a key asset for applications such as medium-scale mapping (at 1:25 000 and 1:10 000 locally), urban and rural planning, oil and gas exploration, and natural disaster management. SPOT-5's other key feature was the unprecedented acquisition capability of the on-board HRS stereo viewing instrument, which could cover vast areas in a single pass. Stereo satellite imagery is vital for applications that call for 3D terrain modeling and computer environments, such as flight simulator databases, pipeline corridors, and mobile phone network planning.

Landsat 9 Missions
Development of the OLI-2 and TIRS-2 instruments is progressing, and both are on target for integration with the spacecraft in mid-2019. The instruments are rebuilds of those onboard Landsat 8; however, TIRS-2 has improved stray light performance through improved telescope baffling and improved position encoder for the scene select mechanism, both issues on the Landsat 8 TIRS instrument. The Landsat 9 ground system and Mission Operations Center (MOC) are progressing through their respective milestones.  Landsat 9 remains on schedule for a December 2020 launch from Vandenberg Air Force Base..
