The KazEOSat-2 Advantage

Wide Scene Footprint
KazEOSat-2 has a wide view and is ready to keep an eye on your regional projects with its 77-kilometer wide footprint and 6.5-meter resolution.

5-Band Medium-Resolution Imagery
Collecting 6.5-meter multispectral (MS) imagery, KazEOSat-2 is the perfect solution for large-area change detection, monitoring and spectral analysis.

An Affordable Solution
With a 500 square kilometer (sq km) minimum order size and affordable per sq km pricing, KazEOSat-2 leads the way in medium-resolution optical satellite imagery.

Overview & HistoryKazEOSat-2 SpecificationsPricing

The Kazakhstan National Space Agency launched KazEOSat-2 on June 19, 2014 from the Yasny Cosmodrome in the Dombarovsky region of Russia. KazEOSat-2 is Kazakhstan’s first commercial medium-resolution satellite and was preceded by KazEOSat-1, it’s 1-meter (m) high-resolution counterpart. This medium-resolution satellite collects 6.5-m five-band (i.e. blue, green, red, red-edge and near-infrared) multispectral imagery.

With a 77-kilometer (km) wide footprint and strips up to 1,925-km long, KazEOSat-2 amasses an impressive 1,000,000 square kilometers of imagery daily. When it comes to large-area monitoring projects, price is often a barrier, but enter KazEOSat-2, an affordable option for high-quality regional mapping data.
