TripleSat

TripleSat

TripleSat Satellite Sensor (0.8m)

The TripleSat/DMC3 Constellation was successfully launch on July 10, 2015 from Dhawan Space Centre, Sriharikota, India and delivers 0.8m panchromatic and 3.2m multispectral high resolution satellite imagery.

The TripleSat satellite constellation consist of three (3) identical optical earth observation satellites, which makes it possible to target anywhere on earth once per day. Satellite imagery is available at 0.8m high-resolution imagery products with a 23.4km swath. Both space and ground segments have been designed to efficiently deliver guaranteed timely information.
