The CNES Pleiades-HR satellites have been launched December 17th 2011 and December 2nd 2012. They provide optical images to civilian and defense users with a resolution of 70 cm and a swath of 20 km in false or natural colors. Coverage is almost world-wide with a revisit interval of 24 h.
The new capabilities offered by these satellites agility allowed imagine new methods of image calibration and performances assessment. This paper presents all the operations that were conducted by the CNES Image Quality Team during the commissioning phases and also give the main results for every image quality performance.
