WorldView-3 Satellite Launched

Today the DigitalGlobe WorldView-3 satellite was launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California.

The satellite was sent up on a United Launch Allliance Atlas 5 rocket. The birth of this new satellite was imaged by its older sibling satellite WorldView-1 as you can see in this film.

WorldView-3 opens up a new era for the commercial optical satellite business having the highest resolution available to date across 8 multispectral bands and shortwave infrared bands.

European Space Imaging hopes to have imagery products available from this new satellite in the very near future.
