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.
