The KOMPSAT-3 Advantage
Launched from Japan’s Tanegashima Space Center on May 17, 2012, KOMPSAT-3 is the first sub-meter optical satellite developed and operated by the Korea Aerospace Research Institute (KARI). Orbiting our planet at 685 kilometers (km), KOMPSAT-3 collects 70-centimeter (cm) panchromatic and 2.8-meter (m) 4-band multispectral (i.e. blue, green, red and near-infrared/NIR) imagery. Introduced in 2020, Zoom processing by SI Imaging enhances the sharpness of raw KOMPSAT 3 imagery to produce 50-cm panchromatic and 2-m 4-band multispectral products.
KOMPSAT-3 separates itself from other multispectral high-resolution satellites with afternoon collection times and 14-bit depth imagery. This makes the Korean satellite an excellent choice for agricultural studies as well as a compliment to imagery collected in the morning.
Below is the least expensive KOMPSAT-3 data offered. Prices increase for new collections, additional spectral bands and data processing. Note that academic and volume discounts are available.
