Deimos 1

Deimos-1 22m Imagery

DEIMOS-1 is unique in providing, at the same time: • High-resolution images (22 m GSD) • Very wide swath (650 km) • Very frequent revisit worldwide (3-4 days for mid-latitude locations) All this, while assuring high quality of the data: • 10 bits quantization • Geo-localization to less than 1 pixel (<22m RMSE) • Cross-calibration with Landsat and DMC satellites And seamless compatibility with Landsat data: • Green band equivalent to Landsat’s ETM+2 • Red band equivalent to Landsat’s ETM+3 • NIR band equivalent to Landsat’s ETM+4

Lineage It was constructed by Surrey Satellite Technology, based on the SSTL-100 satellite bus.[3] Deimos-1 was launched into a 686-kilometre (426 mi) sun-synchronous low Earth orbit.[4] The launch was conducted by ISC Kosmotras, who used a Dnepr-1 carrier rocket, with DubaiSat-1 as the primary payload. Deimos-1, along with the UK-DMC 2, Nanosat 1B, AprizeSat-3 and AprizeSat-4 satellites, were launched as secondary payloads. The rocket was launched at 18:46 GMT on 29 July 2009, from Site 109/95 at the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan.
