CE-SAT-I is an earth observing microsatellite developed and built by Canon Electronics Inc.. Less than 100㎏ class satellite(about 65㎏) is built on a 500㎜ x 500㎜ x 850㎜ structure. It features an optical imaging system based on a 40㎝ diameter Cassegrain telescope with 3720 ㎜ focal length and an detector based on the EOS 5D mkⅢ camera. This imaging system provides an 90㎝ Ground Sampled Distance(GSD) from a 500㎞ orbit with a 6㎞ x 4㎞ frame size. The satellite will be launched in June, 2017 as a secondary payload on an Indian PSLV rocket.
