Geoimage signs new partnership with SIIS

Geoimage, a leading Australian provider of geospatial solutions, has signed off a strategic partnership with SI Imaging Services (SIIS) the official distributor of the Korean owned KOMPSAT constellations since 2012.

The Kompsat constellation comprises a suite of advanced satellites, including KOMPSAT-2, KOMPSAT-3, KOMPSAT-3A, and KOMPSAT-5. These satellites provide high-resolution optical and radar imagery, enabling comprehensive and precise monitoring of the Earth’s surface.

Here’s a closer look into the capabilities of each satellite:

All optical KOMPSAT satellites capture around 1:30pm local time, later in the day compared to other providers closer to 11am local time.

  • K2 offers 1-meter resolution imagery and history of captures over Australia from 2007 to 2022.
  • K3, with up to 50-centimeter resolution, dives into the sub-meter range. Its archive spans from 2013 to the present day, with the ability to task for the most recent data.
  • K3A, the highest resolution up to 40 centimeters, ensures quality with an archive from 2015 to the present, also with tasking capability.
  • K5 - Launched in 2013 is your Radar choice from KOMPSAT, with X-band SAR.

A unique difference of optical KOMPSAT satellites is that they capture around 1:30pm local time, later in the day compared to other providers closer to 11am local time.  This can be beneficial if clouds are predominant in the morning, or your project is afternoon focused.
