New tasking options

For many image requests, a matching image can already be located in the archives of high-resolution KOMPSAT imagery from around the world. If no image data is available in the archives, new KOMPSAT satellite image data can be acquired through a satellite new tasking process.

Search and order process shall be handled by the sales partner. For product pricing and availability for all KOMPSAT series,
please contact us by email at sales@si-imaging.com

Minimum order size

The minimum order size of the new tasking order is 100 km² for KOMPSAT-2, KOMPSAT-3 and KOMPSAT-3A. Minimum swath of AOI should be greater than 5 km.

Off-narid viewing angle

The off-nadir viewing angle (combining the pitch and roll angles) at which an image is collected will have impact on the GSD, the look of the image, and the chance of imaging (re-visit time) as well as delivery schedule. The off-nadir viewing angle has no impact on price.
