Upcoming Vega-C Launches

🎯 Sun-Synchronous Orbit

Sixth South Korean Earth observation satellite of the KOMPSAT series. It is equipped with a synthetic aperture radar with a ground resolution between 0.5 and 20 meters.

Updated: Jan 3, 8:05pm UTC

🎯 Sun-Synchronous Orbit

Biomass is an Earth observation satellite launched as a part of ESA Earth Explorer program. It will be using a P-band synthetic aperture radar to collect data on the height of forests, allowing scientists to determine the amount of biomass and carbon stored there.
