Canada: PCI Geomatics has announced that it now supports KOMPSAT-3 imagery within its software suite. KOMPSAT-3, a new satellite built and operated by the Korean Aerospace Research Institute (KARI) was launched on May 12th, 2012 from the Tanegashima Space Center of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA), Japan. KOMPSAT-3 is an optical imaging satellite capable of imaging the Earth with a resolution of 0.70 m Panchromatic and 2.8 m Multispectral (Blue, Green, Red, Near-IR). KOMPSAT-3 includes the Advanced Earth Imaging Sensor System (AEISS), which is a high-resolution imager (Pan and MS). This prime instrument of the mission was developed by KARI.
“We are very pleased with the great effort of PCI Geomatics,” said Dr. TaeByeong CHAE, Head of the Satellite information Proliferation Team at KARI. “With this new and improved solution, KOMPSAT-3 images will be more easily accessible and useful to the public and commercial users around the globe,” he added.
