Another Jilin submeter resolution satellite launched successfully, expanding HEAD’s 45 sat portfolio

Paris, France, 27 September 2021 – Another Jilin Satellite, JLGF02D, was successfully launched on 27 September 2021 in China. The JLGF02D is a follow-up mission of the two current JLGF02A/B satellites developed by Chang Guang Satellite Technology Co Ltd. (CGSTL), the strategic partner of HEAD Aerospace. JLGF02D will provide

imagery at 0.75m native resolution at a panchromatic band and 3m multispectral bands with a swath of 40km.

The three JLGF02 satellites, JLGF02A/B/D, will fulfill user requirements in mono and stereo imaging tasking demands. The JLGF02D will join the current on-orbit satellites of the JL constellation consisting of 26 satellites in which 24 are 1m or better resolution and two hyperspectral satellites.

HEAD Aerospace commercializes 45 on-orbit satellites ranging from 0.50m resolution up to 5m resolution, a large imagery portfolio with optical daytime, true-color nighttime imagery, stereo imagery with Tri-stereo camera satellites, video from space as well as hyperspectral satellites. The current HEADfinder portal allows end-users easy access to all of our satellite capacities to check the archive available in your interest area.

HEAD provides satellite imagery, value-added services, and integrated solution thanks to our current 100+ global resellers and value-added service providers. Few more commercial remote sensing satellites are expected to be launched in Q4 2021.
