WorldView Legion [DigitalGlobe]
MDA's daughter company DigitalGlobe announced in early 2017 to build a next generation constellation of earth observation satellites called WorldView Legion to superceede the aging WorldView 1 and WorldView 2 satellites.
The satellites in this constellation shall be able to revisit some locations on Earth up to 40 times in a day. The number of satellites in the constellation has not yet disclosed.
The satellites will be built by SS/Loral, another daughter company of MDA, which will result in significant savings.
