The lightweight, high-resolution Earth Resources Observation Satellite has the ability to image a target from several angles in the same orbital pass.

Menashe Broder, CEO of ImageSat International N.V., announced at the Paris Air Show in Le Bourget recently that the company’s lightweight, high-resolution Earth Resources Observation Satellite, EROS A, has proven its ability to image a target from several angles in the same orbital pass.

“The successful triple, or even a larger number of images of a target during the same pass, provides ImageSat’s Customers with a distinct advantage in imagery processing and the creation of value-added products,” Broder said.

EROS A’s multiple-imaging capability enables the customer to quickly and accurately obtain the multiple high-resolution imagery data under the same weather, lighting and physical conditions, from the same orbital path. Using the images from different angles, customers are able to build a digital terrain model (DTM), including the high resolution that is derived from the overhead images. These tools may be used for such applications as mission planning, mapping, fly-through simulations and infrastructure planning.

Weighing only 250 kg. before launch, EROS A performs asynchronous, push-broom scanning, at an angle of up to 60 degrees from nadir. This functionality enables a customer to evaluate a target, even when the satellite pass is not directly overhead. An actual-size model of ImageSat’s next-generation EROS B1 satellite is on display for the first time at the Paris Air Show, in the pavilion of Israel Aircraft Industries Ltd., manufacturers of the EROS family of high-resolution satellites.
