COSMO-Skymed Satellite Constellation


E-GEOS provides satellite imagery from the COSMO-SkyMed satellite constellation. This constellation, originally founded by the Italian Space Agency, consists of four satellites equipped with synthetic aperture radar. E-GEOS is the exclusive distributor of imagery from the COSMO-SkyMed satellite constellation.

Bring it on: This system functions day and night, regardless of weather conditions and can be used for environmental protection, natural resources exploration, MPA monitoring and surveillance applications, defense and security strategies and scientific and commercial purposes.

Maritime applications: The system applications include maritime domain awareness through low spatial resolution modes in which information is collected in near-real time (under a half hour after satellite pass). Information, such as ship position or oil slick detection, can be obtained through this imaging platform. An integrated and automated service chain at the receiving location, which can either be fixed or mobile, gives flexibility in how the user receives the data.

Pick your package: The two packages available with COSMO-SkyMed are Interfero Stack package and Monitoring package. The Interfero package includes a data stack of a minimum of five scenes over the same area in a twelve-month period, while the Monitoring package includes a minimum of five scenes over the same area in a three-month period. The Monitoring package has much larger standard scene sizes and has lower resolutions than the Interfero.


Hardware: 4 medium-sized satellites equipped with X-band SAR
Resolution: 1 to 100 meters depending on the package
Revisit Rate: Every 11 hours

Currently, E-GEOS provides monitoring services of deforestation in the Amazon for the Brazilian government.
