Deimos-1 (also known as Spain-DMC 1) is a Spanish Earth imaging satellite developed by Deimos Imaging.

With a weight of 100 kg, it was launched in 2009 and provides data with a spatial resolution of 22 m.
The satellite provides imagery in a 3-channel multispectral mode with a very wide (650 km) swath, assuring high frequency of revisit on large areas. It was especially tailored for agriculture, forestry and monitoring applications in mind. Deimos-1 is a member of the DMC (Disaster Monitoring Constellation) and it is currently one of the leading high-resolution data sources around the world.
