Remote sensing instrument built for FORMOSAT-5

Taiwan: The National Applied Research Laboratories (NARLabs) has developed Taiwan’s first indigenous optical remote sensing instrument (RSI), which will be part of the payload for the FORMOSAT-5 satellite. This satellite is likely to replace the Earth observation satellite FORMOSAT-2, which has been operating for over a decade since its launch in 2004. The FORMOSAT-5 satellite will be launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California in early 2016.
