Kompsat-3

Kompsat-3

KOMPSAT-3 Satellite Sensor (0.7m)

KOMPSAT-3 (Arirang-3) spacecraft was successfully launched on May 17, 2012 (16:39 UTC) from the Tanegashima Space Center of JAXA, Japan on the H-IIA launch system. Launch provider: Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd.

KOMPSAT-3 is an optical high-resolution Korean observation mission of KARI (Korea Aerospace Research Institute). The project was started in 2004. The objective is to provide observation continuity from the KOMPSAT-1 and KOMPSAT-2 missions to meet the nation's needs for high-resolution optical imagery required for GIS (Geographical Information Systems) and other environmental, agricultural and oceanographic monitoring applications.

The KOMPSAT-3 is 3-axis stabilized. The agile spacecraft features a body pointing capability of ±45o into any direction (cross-track or along-track). This satellite agility permits event monitoring as well as single-pass stereoscopic observations

KOMPSAT-3 can provide sub-meter images with various imaging modes. It will continue to provide sub-meter imagery to domestic and international users for the applications of public safety, resource management, environmental monitoring, location-based services, intelligence and disaster monitoring.

Landsat 9 Missions
Development of the OLI-2 and TIRS-2 instruments is progressing, and both are on target for integration with the spacecraft in mid-2019. The instruments are rebuilds of those onboard Landsat 8; however, TIRS-2 has improved stray light performance through improved telescope baffling and improved position encoder for the scene select mechanism, both issues on the Landsat 8 TIRS instrument. The Landsat 9 ground system and Mission Operations Center (MOC) are progressing through their respective milestones.  Landsat 9 remains on schedule for a December 2020 launch from Vandenberg Air Force Base..
