Low earth orbits are defined as orbits with altitude below 2000km, these orbits provide superior advantages for earth observations missions. The distinction between VLEO and LEO is the altitude of the former is below 500km. VLEO missions possess great advantages such as, in maritime surveillance, illegal immigration and piracy this is due to the fact that the imagery capabilities are enhanced significantly and identification of small objects in the order of 1 meter is feasible, in addition to higher frequency of intraday location inspection visits. These are some of the great benefits for home land security and national security of any country.
