The first generation of SuperView comprises four 50cm satellites and a 40cm satellite addition in 2020. Two SuperView SAR satellites at 50cm are scheduled to launch in a few months. HEAD expects to offer 30cm images from SuperView Neo-1 and Neo-2 and JL-1 GF04 to worldwide customers in one or two months.
