The KOMPSAT 3A offers 40cm-resolution imagery for a variety of purposes such as mapping, monitoring infrastructure, agriculture, managing natural resources, etc. Meanwhile, KOMPSAT-5 offers very-high-resolution SAR imagery up to 85 centimetres for change detection irrespective of weather conditions.
