Launch of the First Global Alliance of Earth Observation Satellites Operators
12th September 2014.- Elecnor Deimos, the technological area of the Elecnor Group, announced today the launch of the PanGeo Alliance, the first global alliance of Earth Observation satellites operators. The PanGeo Alliance currently federates 4 satellite operator entities from around the world: Dauria Aerospace (US/Russia), the Emirates Institution for Advanced Science & Technology, (UAE), Elecnor Deimos (Spain) and Beijing Space Eye Innovation Technology (China).
The PanGeo fleet is composed of 9 satellites currently in orbit: Perseus-M1, Perseus-M2, Dauria-DX-1, DubaiSat-1, DubaiSat-2, Deimos-1, Deimos-2, TH-1-01 and TH-1-02. This fleet will be expanded to more than 30 satellites in the next years with the launch of KhalifaSat, of the Perseus-O and Auriga constellations, and with the expansion of the TH-1 constellation, plus satellites brought into the alliance by prospective new members that may join in the future.
The PanGeo fleet provides multispectral imagery in a wide range of resolutions (from 20m to 75cm per pixel), with a daily global imaging capability. Moreover, it provides AIS data for ship identification and maritime traffic control. All PanGeo Alliance members can provide access to the full satellite fleet and product portfolio from all members.
PanGeo multisatellite mission planning allows to assess imaging opportunities for all satellites in the alliance, and to directly request imaging tasking to the satellite operator. PanGeo Alliance will also coordinate the access to the archives of all members, so that each member can see what is available and directly request images from the entire Alliance archive.
The PanGeo satellite fleet provides unmatched revisit capabilities for high frequency targets, and customers can benefit of a global network of resellers and of a unified access point to new tasking and archive imagery of the complete fleet plus an extensive range of final user and data fusion products.
