KOMPSAT-5 SAR payload includes X-band (9.66 GHz) Synthetic Aperture Radar with a fixed antenna capable of electronic steering both in the azimuth and the elevation planes. It 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. For all observation modes, HH, VV, HV, or VH polarization is available for ordering.


Three 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 (Korean Multi-Purpose Satellite) program is a part of the Korean government’s space development program, which aims at providing very high-resolution satellite imagery to national and international remote sensing society.

The nominal and extended access regions for all imaging modes are respectively 20° ~ 45° and 45° ~ 55°.

The standard processing of the KOMPSAT-5 SAR data is as much as possible aligned with the definition deriving from literature. If some alternative approach has been adopted for the product specification, it is oriented to add value to the output data, preserving, in any case, the possibility for the final user to remove the effects of the additional non-standard processing applied to the data. The following table shows the three different processing levels that are available for ordering:

Processing level
Info and Projection


- Single Look Complex, In-Phase and Quadrature focused data, weighted and radiometrically equalized vs. slant range losses
- Slant range / Azimuth (Zero-Doppler)


- Geocoded Earth Ellipsoid, Amplitude of the focused data, multilooked


Geocoded Earth Terrain, Backscattering coefficient of the observed scene, multilooked (but for High-Resolution Mode), with annexed the Incidence Angles Mask


Imaging mode: High Resolution (HR)

Imaging mode: Standard (ST)

Imaging mode: Wide Swath (WS)

With Archive, you get past KOMPSAT-5 imagery over the desired area of interest. The image catalogue starts from 2013. So, when you send us a quote request for KOMPSAT-5 Archive, our team searches the existing catalogue for you according to the AOI and date of your choice and reaches you with all the available options.

With Tasking, you can have new KOMPSAT-5 acquisitions over your desired AOI; you just have to include additionally in your quote request the desired polarization, orbit direction, as well as the collection time frame.

New tasking priority provides two options designed to meet a variety of your needs. These options consider that balance the cost against the need for timeliness, level of risk, and control over the collection window.


  • with standard priority, the order shall be confirmed before 03:00 UTC two working days before the start of the collection window

  • with higher priority, the order shall be confirmed before 03:00 UTC one working day before the start of the collection window

Beyond the standard options, individual product configurations are possible:

  • Different data acquisition modes, including stereo imagery to derive 3D models

  • Repetitive acquisitions for monitoring purposes

  • Multi-user licenses for larger enterprises

  • For universities, an academic discount is available. Please provide a short description of your project if you wish to apply for this discount

Please fill out the form below adding in the 'Remarks' section your exact requirements - we will get back to you asap. Volume discounts for larger areas are also available
