The KazEOSat-1 Advantage

Wide Image Footprint
A 20-kilometer wide footprint with 1-meter panchromatic and 4-meter four-band multispectral resolution makes KazEOSat-1 a perfect solution for projects requiring high-resolution imagery.

Stereo Collections
KazEOSat-1 boasts the agility to image accurate optical stereo pairs for digital elevation models (DEMs) and 3D visualization.

Imagery on a Budget
High-quality, 1-meter resolution imagery is hard to find at a reasonable price. KazEOSat-1 delivers the affordable imagery you need for your next geospatial project.

Overview & HistoryKazEOSat-1 SpecificationsPricing

The Kazakhstan National Space Agency launched KazEOSat-1 on April 30, 2014 from the Guiana Space Center, French Guiana. KazEOSat-1 is Kazakhstan’s first high-resolution satellite, and it compliments KazEOSat-2’s medium-resolution capabilities. This high-resolution satellite collects 1-meter (m) panchromatic and 4-m four-band (i.e. blue, green, red and near-infrared) multispectral imagery, and is also equipped to acquire optical stereo pairs.

KazEOSat-1 collects 220,000 square kilometers (sq km) of high-resolution imagery daily with a 20-km swath width. With a georeferenced imagery accuracy of 15-meter CE90 and revisits every three days, it’s an ideal satellite for site monitoring. An affordable price and wide footprint gives KazEOSat-1 a leg up on the competition.
