New Limits on Satellite Imaging of Israel

On July 21, the Commerce Department published a Federal Register notice announcing its finding, pursuant to the Kyl-Bingaman Amendment, that satellite imagery of Israel is readily and consistently available from non-U.S. commercial sources at a resolution of 0.4 meters Ground Sample Distance (m GSD).

The Department has therefore changed the existing resolution limit of 2.0 m GSD to 0.4 m GSD for U.S.-licensed satellite imaging of Israel.
