Developed and operated by KARI for KMA or ME (Ministry of Ennvironment) or MLTM (Ministry of Land, Transport and Maritime Affairs), depending on the specific mission.
3-axis stabilised platforms.
The design life of the satellites is 10 years.
The orbital position may be either 128.2°E or 116.2°E.
See detailed description at:
CDAS (Command and Data Acquisition System) for real-time acquisition of the full information, pre-processing at MODAC (Meteo/Ocean Data Application Center) and re-transmission in near-real time.
HRIT (High Resolution Information Transmission) for near-real time broadcasting of the full information.
LRIT (Low Rate Information Transmission) for broadcasting of image frames and other data.
