KOMPSAT-5 Tasking

<img src="Kompsat.png" alt="Kompsat 5">

KOMPSAT-5 Tasking offers the latest synthetic aperture radar (SAR) imagery with up to 0.85-meter resolution in 3 different acquisition modes: high resolution (HR), standard (ST), and wide swath (WS). Launched in 2014, the KOMPSAT-5 satellite collects X-band SAR data, which works under all weather conditions and is ideal for ocean monitoring, land management, disaster analysis, and environmental monitoring.

Product Description 

Synthetic aperture radar (SAR) imagery is widely used where reliable images need to be taken independently of cloud cover and daylight. SAR images are perfect for tasks such as topography (Digital Elevation Model generation with interferometry), change detection and surveillance, agriculture monitoring, crop classification, soil moisture, geology, disaster monitoring, and maritime applications like oil spill monitoring and ship detection.

KOMPSAT-5 provides high-quality SAR satellite imagery in multiple acquisition modes, including extra-wide swath with 20-meter resolution and 100 km width, ultra-high mode with up to 0.85-meter resolution and 5 km width, and standard mode with a resolution of 2.5-meters and a swath of 30 km. The imagery is captured at 6:00 in the morning and evening. For all observation modes, the user can select between HH, VV, HV, or VH polarization. KOMPSAT-5 has an average revisit rate of 28 days over the same area.

For time-based licenses, a Workbench - your virtual machine configured for geoprocessing - is required. Workbench saves time and expenses for new hardware, software management, and data acquisition. Access your Workbench from any device anywhere in the world. For more information about the Workbench, please click here.
