RapidEye for Agriculture
Provides a huge amount of images that allow the extraction of accurate and timely information relevant harvest.
Very High Resolution Data
Using scenes acquired by satellites with very high spatial resolution has opened additional application scenarios in a very small scale, typical of administrations and local authorities
Geographic Information System
Organized set of hardware, software and people, aimed at the acquisition, management, analysis and visualization of alphanumerical and graphical information related to a given territory.
Land and Geology
Knowledge of spatial features and their evolution in time, is the starting point for an optimization of management. To do this, the process of study and planning, may be supported by GIS solutions (like geographic databases and geographic information systems)
Smart Cities
Iptsat develops projects of infrastructure and harmonization of geographic data within the municipalities, making them accessible and usable by the greatest number of users possible through conversion to open data and publication in catalogs and webgis.

Very High Resolution Data (0,5 mt - 4mt)

In recent years the possibility of using scenes captured by satellites at high spatial resolution has opened more application scenarios which can be realized in a very small scale, typical of administrations and local authorities.
The databases created will form a valuable contribution to the activities of government land, supporting in particular the activities of surveying, cartography and photogrammetry numerical, three-dimensional modeling, Geographic Information Systems and, most importantly, the Information Systems Decision Support.


Comparison between Satellites

Comparison between Satellites

Main high-resolution satellites:


    • Is a satellite for remote sensing high-resolution Earth Observation launched into orbit in September 2008.
      GeoEye-1 is provided with a panchromatic resolution of 41 centimeters (16 inches) and a multispectral of 1.65 meters. Traveling in sun-synchronous orbit at an altitude of 684 km (425 miles) and an inclination of 98 degrees, with a crossing time of 10:30 at the equator. The GeoEye-1 can store images up to 60 degrees off nadir.


    • Is an artificial commercial satellite with high spatial resolution: it was the first satellite that was able to record images at a resolution between 1 and 4 meters. It can offer both panchromatic images in which multispectral.
      IKONOS is able to have a ground resolution of 0.82 meters in landscape mode (black and white) and 3.2 meters in multispectral or color. These may be fused together to create color images with very high resolution.


    • Is one of the most modern commercial satellites currently in orbit, equipped with cutting-edge tools for accurate geolocation and equipped with a sensor that provides panchromatic images at a resolution of 50 cm. Launched in 2007, the sensor acquires even in stereo mode with a high degree of accuracy; stereo pairs so generated can be used for the extraction of digital elevation models (DEM).


    • Launched in October 2009, is the first commercial satellite with high-resolution 8-band multispectral. Operating at an altitude of 770 kilometers, WorldView-2 provides a spatial resolution of 46 cm in the band panchromatic and 1.85 meter multispectral. WorldView-2 has an average revisit time of 1.1 days and is able to collect up to 785 thousand square kilometers of images per day.


    • And very high resolution satellite in orbit since 2001, has been designed to take large areas efficiently and with high accuracy and is able to acquire up to 75 million square kilometers of area per year, featuring a global catalog of very high resolution data updated with a frequency unprecedented.
      The QuickBird satellite data are suitable for all the needs of mapping over large areas and can be used in many fields of application for land monitoring, prevention and management of natural risks and analysis of change detection.


    • are the first French observation satellites dual to meet the needs of users, both commercial and military, in Europe, with a wide range of applications, including mapping, urban development, hydrology, geophysics, volcanology, etc...
      This constellation is able to provide color images orthorectified to 50 cm of resolution, with a time of revisiting daily of any point of the Earth. In addition, the Pleiades are able to acquire high-resolution stereo images in a single pass. The accuracy of the image is about 3 meters, but can be improved - to the exceptional value of 1 meter - with the use of GCP. Since the satellite is designed primarily for emergency management, the demand for images may be up to six hours prior to the acquisition.
      The satellite Pleiades 1A was launched in December 2011; Pleiades 1B in December 2012.


  • The abbreviation SPOT refers to the set of French satellites for the study of earth resources, the first of which placed in orbit February 22, 1986.
    The SPOT images can satisfy d `geographic information in many fields: cartography, defense, agriculture, identifying cadastral packages, urban planning, telecommunications, the environment. The images acquired by sensors placed on board the SPOT satellites are extremely useful as a source of information `to study, monitor, predict natural phenomena and guide the activities of planning, supporting decisions.
    Its high resolution (up to 2.5 meters) allows identification of the forms and the extent of the objects on the ground allowing the realization of cartography to medium scale (1:50,000 / 1:100,000).
    With SPOT 2, 4, 5, and the new 6 and 7 (resolution 1.5 m) SPOT mission since 1986 has collected an archive of more than 30 million of scenes.
  • TH-01 Satellite Cosntellation 

    The Chinese  TH-01 Constellation can acquire  2m panchromatic and  10m multispectral and 5m triplet stereo (Back-Nadir-Forward) images and supports applications for 3D terrain mapping and production of 10m DSM/DEM and DTM elevation models and contours to support engineering, surveying and mapping projects.


    TripleSat Satellite Sensor
  • The Chinese TripleSat Constellation was successfully launch on July 10, 2015 from Dhawan Space Centre, Sriharikota, India and delivers 0.8m panchromatic and 3.2m multispectral high resolution satellite imagery.
