WorldView-3 is the first multi-payload, super-spectral high-resolution commercial satellite.

The WorldView-3 was launched on August 13, 2014 from Vandenberg Air Force Base (USA), California. Operator - DigitalGlobe (USA).
Operating at an altitude of 617 km, WorldView-3 provides panchromatic imaging with a 31 cm resolution, multispectral imaging with 1.24 m resolution, short-wave infrared imaging with 3.7 m resolution and imaging in 30 m CAVIS resolution.
The satellite has an average revisit time of less than 1 day, and is capable of collecting up to 680,000 km² per day.
