KOMPSAT-3A

KOMPSAT-3A

KOMPSAT-3A Satellite Sensor (0.55m)

The KOMPSAT-3A spacecraft was launched on March 25, 2015 (22:08:53 UTC) on a Dnepr-1 vehicle from the Jasny Dombarovsky launch site in Russia. The launch provider was ISC (International Space Company) Kosmotras and will become commercially available during the summer of 2015.

Kompsat-3A will be a sister spacecraft to the previously launched Kompsat-3 (Arirang-3), both of which were developed by the Korea Aerospace Research Institute (KARI).

The major goal of the KOMPSAT-3A program is to develop an earth observation satellite to obtain IR (Infrared) and high resolution EO (Electro-Optical) images for a variety of applications such as Geographical Information Systems (GIS), and environmental, agricultural and oceanographic monitoring as well as urban planning, resource management and disaster relief. KOMPSAT-3A will provide panchromatic resolution of 0.55m and multispectral resolution of 2.20m and also has an infrared sensor at 5.5m resolution.

KOMPSAT-3A is equipped with two imaging payloads; the Advanced Earth Imaging Sensor System A (AEISS-A) and an Infrared Imaging Payload. AEISS-A is similar to that of the KOMPSAT-3 spacecraft and was developed by KARI with technical support from Astrium Defence and Space and the German Aerospace Center that developed the Focal Plane Assembly and main Camera Electronics Unit.
