WorldView-3 Defined

WorldView-3, scheduled to launch in mid-2014, is expected to be the first super-spectral, high-resolution commercial satellite. 

Operating at an expected altitude of 617 kilometers (km), WorldView-3 will provide 31 centimeters (cm) panchromatic resolution, 1.24 meters (m) multispectral resolution in 8 spectral bands, and 3.7 meters (m) Short-Wave Infrared resolution in an additional 8 spectral bands.

WorldView-3 will be capable of collecting up to 680,000 square kilometers (km2) per day, bringing the collection capacity of the DigitalGlobe constellation to more than 4.2 million km2 per day.
