DubaiSat-2 is the second Earth observation satellite of United Arab Emirates Institution for Advanced Science and Technology (EIAST). As the predecessor DubaiSat 1, it is built by Satrec Initiative to be launched in 2012. DubaiSat-2 is based pon the SpaceEye-1 configuration, which uses a SI-300 bus and the EOS-D camera.
EOS-D optical payload is a push-broom type camera with 1 m Ground Sampling Distance (GSD) for a panchromatic band and 4 m GSD for four multi-spectral bands. Swath width of the generated image is wider than 12 km. A high performance solid-state recorder is installed to receive, process, store and transmit image data in high speed. During transmission of the stored image data using X-band transmitter, the solid-state recorder compresses, encrypts and encodes the data in real time.
|Panchromatic||550 - 900 nm|
Band 1 (Blue): 450 - 520 nm
Band 2 (Green): 520 - 590 nm
Band 3 (Red): 630 - 690 nm
Band 4 (Near-IR): 770 - 890 nm
