KOMPSAT-3A

KOMPSAT-3A
  • Combine infrared data with very high resolution multispectral imagery
  • Achieve highly accurate landcover classifications
  • Due to 14 bits/pixel best suited for spectral analysis
  • Generate appealing mosaics
  • Starting at 16 € per km2 for perpetual licence (excl. VAT)
  • Save costs with time licences and check KOMPSAT as a Service


Since 2015 KOMPSAT-3A provides panchromatic imagery at 0.4 m and multispectral imagery at 1.6 m resolution. It combines very high resolution together with an infrared channel. The archive of this satellite is rapidly increasing. You can order the data for your area of interest and get rid of time consuming image search: We provide to you the latest available image.

Please note: There is no charge, if we do not find data within your area of interest with less than 20% cloud cover. We will charge less, if the data are older than 60 days. In any case, we will let you know.

Product description 

KOMPSAT-3A is Korea's first Earth observation/Infrared satellite with two imaging systems on board. It was launched in May 2012 from Japan's Tanegashima Space Center. Except of the infrared capability KOMPSAT-3A is the sister of KOMPSAT-3, using an identical satellite bus and payload. The satellite will expand the existing constellation and ensure data continuity after KOMPSAT-3 reaches is planned EOL (End-of-Life) date after three to five years of operation.

Its local access time is very unique at 13:30 hours, which is the same as that of KOMPSAT-3. However, since KOMPSAT-3A was put into lower orbit than KOMPSAT-3 (528 km for KOMPSAT-3A versus 675 km for KOMPSAT-3), it delivers clearer and sharper imagery. The same imaging time and similar payload with KOMPSAT-3 will amplify its capacity and help to even out the difference of the color.
