OrbView-4

Overview

Destination: Sun-Synchronous Orbit
Mission: Earth Science

Sun-Synchronous Orbit Space Launch Complex 576E Vandenberg SFB, CA, USA

Orbview 4 was a high resolution commercial Earth imaging satellite imagery. OrbView 4's imaging instrument was to provide one-meter panchromatic imagery and four-meter multispectral imagery. OrbView 4 was lost in an launch failure, when the Taurus-2110 carrier rocket suffered an loss of control, which was recovered, but orbit was not achieved.
