KOMPAST 3A

  1. Name KOMPAST 3A
  2. Code KP3A
  3. Application 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.
