CAS500 (Compact Advanced Satellite 500)

  • The purpose of the 500 kg-class Compact Advanced Satellite is to meet the demand for satellite in the public sector effectively, expand the foundation for the domestic satellite industry, and foster the industry. The CAS500 series plans to apply the standard platform developed for the CAS500-1 to the subsequent CAS500 series and carry various localized payloads.

    In the Phase 1 program, The plan includes the development of the 500 kg-class standard platform for the CAS500 series and two 50 cm-class high-resolution Compact Advanced Satellites using the platform. KARI and the industry will jointly develop the CAS500-1, and KARI will transfer the core technologies to the industry. For the CAS500-2, the industry will be responsible for the overall development, with KARI performing the technical audit and technical support.

    In the phase 2 program, the Industry plans to develop three satellites for the verification of space science and technology, observation of agricultural and forest conditions, and control of water resources and disaster. KARI will performing the technical management & supervison
