NEUsar

NSSDCA ID: 2022-072C
COSPAR ID: 2022-072A

Description

The Singaporean national space office said NeuSAR is a pathfinder for a future commercial constellation of radar imaging satellites. The spacecraft hosts a synthetic aperture radar payload capable of providing images of Earth’s surface in day and night, and in all weather conditions, without the limitations on lighting and cloud cover for optical imaging satellites.

The NeuSAR satellite will image land and maritime regions and is capable of detecting small changes between two passes over the same area. A constellation of six similar satellites could observe the same region every hour, according to Singapore’s national space office.

The DS-EO and NeuSAR satellites were built by Satrec Initiative, a South Korean spacecraft manufacturer that specializes in Earth observation missions. Video of the launch campaign in India released by ISRO showed Satrec engineers assisting in preparing the satellites for integration with the PSLV.
