Our on-demand Satellite Tasking Service is available through the Coordinated Imagery Program, enabling quicker access to high-resolution and high-accuracy satellite imagery.
Satellite imagery offers advantages over traditional aerial imagery including efficiencies in capturing large areas of interest in short timeframes and ease of repeat captures enabling comparison of satellite imagery over time. The service also offers access to synthetic aperture radar (SAR) technology. SAR allows for the acquisition of imagery during periods of high-cloud cover and observation at night-time.
Satellite imagery is currently used by state and local government agencies and emergency services for a range of uses, including assisting with planning, monitoring of major infrastructure projects, supporting forestry management, planned burns and identifying illegal clearing. It also supports rapid response to extreme weather events, including floods and bushfires.
Through the Satellite Tasking Service, state and local government agencies have access to 54 satellites in orbit at various resolutions. The service offers near real-time delivery of high-quality imagery once captured, with suppliers offering turnaround times between 2-12 hours post-capture. Archived satellite imagery can also be acquired at various resolutions.
The below table provides technical details of the different satellites available to task.
