NORAD ID: 35946
Int'l Code: 2009-055A
Perigee: 772.9 km
Apogee: 774.4 km
Inclination: 98.5 °
Period: 100.2 minutes
Semi major axis: 7144 km
RCS: 7.429 m2 (large)

Launch site: AIR FORCE WESTERN TEST RANGE (AFWTR)

Operating at an altitude of 770 kilometers, WORLDVIEW 2 will enable DigitalGlobe to offer half-meter panchromatic resolution and 1.8-meter multispectral resolution. The WORLDVIEW 2 system will allow DigitalGlobe to substantially expand its imagery product offerings to both commercial and international customers with a more commercially desirable, higher performance product. Added spectral diversity will provide the ability to perform precise change detection and mapping. WORLDVIEW 2 will incorporate the industry standard four multispectral bands (red, blue, green and near-infrared) and will also include four new bands (coastal, yellow, red edge, and near-infrared 2). The WorldView 2 telescope will have a 110-cm aperture and fly at a higher altitude of 770 km. It will provide the same panchromatic half-meter resolution imagery as WorldView 1, in addition to 1.8-meter multispectral resolution imagery.
