Assembly of Digital Globe's WorldView 3

WorldView-3 is the first multi-payload, super-spectral, high-resolution commercial satellite. Operating at an expected altitude of 617 kilometers, WorldView-3 provides 31 cm panchromatic resolution, 1.24 m multispectral resolution, and 3.7 m short-wave infrared resolution. WorldView-3 has an average revisit time of less than one day and is capable of collecting up to 680,000 square kilometers per day, further enhancing the DigitalGlobe collection capacity for more rapid and reliable collection.
