Happy Anniversary QuickBird (2001-2011)

10 Years ago today, DigitalGlobe launched the QuickBird satellite -2400 pounds of high-resolution technology! QuickBird uses Ball Aerospace’s Global Imaging System 2000 (BGIS 2000)[1] that collects the fourth highest resolution commercial imagery of Earth after WorldView-1, WorldView-2 and GeoEye-1 and boasts the largest image size and the greatest on-board storage capacity of any satellite.
