GF-6 SATELLITE

HR Resolution, Large Swath, 8-band, Optical, Teamworking with GF-1 Constellation

GF-6 (short for GaoFen-6) is equipped with two cameras, one is high-resolution camera with 2 m panchromatic and 8 m multispectral resolution, the other is a wide-field imager (WFI), collecting 16 m multispectral imagery. The WFI has a large view field, providing the swath of 860 km, and it is agriculture- & forest-oriented with its 8 multispectral bands. GF-6 teams with four GF-1 satellites, collecting huge amount of data.
