Product description 

KOMPSAT-3A is Korea's first Earth observation/Infrared satellite with two imaging systems on board. It was launched in May 2012 from Japan's Tanegashima Space Center. Except of the infrared capability KOMPSAT-3A is the sister of KOMPSAT-3, using an identical satellite bus and payload. The satellite will expand the existing constellation and ensure data continuity after KOMPSAT-3 reaches is planned EOL (End-of-Life) date after three to five years of operation.

Its local access time is very unique at 13:30 hours, which is the same as that of KOMPSAT-3. However, since KOMPSAT-3A was put into lower orbit than KOMPSAT-3 (528 km for KOMPSAT-3A versus 675 km for KOMPSAT-3), it delivers clearer and sharper imagery. The same imaging time and similar payload with KOMPSAT-3 will amplify its capacity and help to even out the difference of the color.
