Earth Observation Range

CARBONITE

Low cost 1m GSD colour video

Carbonite-1, launched in July 2015, demonstrated low cost, 1m GSD imagery and was followed by Carbonite-2 in January 2018 which provided the world's first commercial HD colour video from space.

Operating at an altitude of 500km, Carbonite satellites provide 1m GSD colour video employing a Forward Motion Compensation (FMC) imaging mode which enables captures of  >120 seconds of a single target, adding a new dimension to high resolution Earth observation imagery.
