I don't think this data is confidential. If we dig more, it must be
somewhere. But, as with WV2, and other sensors, when I set out to get
the respective numbers, I realised that it wasn't a str8 line.  For
example, <http://apollomapping.com/> offered these numbers in white
papers and excel files, while DG did not.

Note, that commercial software did have these numbers integrated already
in their corresponding processing tools. And, though I haven't checked,
I guess there is already the option to perform conversions and
atmospherric corrections for WV3 imagery.

If these data are for sale, I am in to contribute in buying them, as
much as I can.
