CORVUS BC4

NSSDCA/COSPAR ID: 2018-099K

Description

Corvus-BC, also known as Landmapper-BC, is a ten-satellite Earth Remote Sensing Constellation operated by Astro Digital (formerly Aquila Space) as part of the company’s space segment that is planned to comprise a high-resolution component (Landmapper HD) and a medium-resolution, large area segment (Landmapper BC) to generate data for commercial and scientific application.

The Landmapper constellation is expected to consist of 30 satellites, 10 in the BC and 20 in the HD configuration to be able to collect imagery at a daily revisit in medium resolution and one to four-day revisit for 2.5-meter resolution data. Astro Digital elected to use the same spectral filters as the Landsat program to ensure data compatibility and science-standard data quality.
