KazEOSat-1 - Kazakhstan's first Earth observation satellite

KazEOSat-1 is a 900kg high-resolution satellite. From a low sun-synchronous orbit it will provide the Republic of Kazakhstan with a complete range of civil applications, including monitoring of natural and agricultural resources, provision of mapping data, and support for rescue operations in the event of a natural disaster.

Airbus Defence and Space, the world's leading exporter of Earth observation satellites, signed with Kazakhstan Gharysh Sapary (KGS) the contract to supply the Government of the Republic of Kazakhstan with a space Earth observation system following an international tender process in 2009.
