    Does anybody know the spatial resolution of BADR-B?

    Just came to know that it is sun synchronous (from DAWN). Got a few questions:

    1. How frequently can it re-visit the same spot on earth?

    2. What kinda camera is it? What is its spatial resolution?

    3. Any link/sites on Pakistani space research (that gives details?)

    ADMIN. plz remove posts like ranking of university & Kumarakn s post which has no relation to Pakistans betterment ,ethos ,philosophy & pride,

    Geeks like zz,Andhra,Queer,Astrosofan & kumarakn would like to turn us into discussing thermodynamics & calculus like them

    Indias education system is geared to its need & philosophy & it is of no interest to me whether they have management institute Or iit .We arnt going to go to them ,thank goodness,neither are we impressed by them.
    Indians ae very much into scoring 1600 in sat good for them,that doesnt seem to impress us nor we aspire to be so
    Pakistan painda bad .

        Detailed info about Badr-B is available

        at http://www.suparco.gov.pk/satbadar2.html

        Camera:
        =========
        A compact, low-mass, wide-angle CCD camera
        has been developed for remote sensing from
        small or micro-satellites. The project will
        take advantage of the opportunity of a low-
        cost, short-timescale launch to produce
        early data demonstrating the technology
        available for ‘small cloud’ detection. It is
        of particular interest to future satellite
        instruments involved in the measurement of
        sea surface temperature.


        The 2.5 kg camera operates at visible
        wavelengths and uses a large format CCD to
        achieve 250 m x 250 m resolution on the
        ground with a field of view of ±8.5°
        (equivalent to 194 x 144 km on the ground).
        The challenge in designing and building this
        instrument has been the need to maintain
        performance with restrictions on the
        available space, mass, power and schedule

        ------------------
        Is this info enough or you need more about
        Pakistan's future Space program that looks
        fairly advanced and encouraging !!!
        I work for a Company Called "Lockheed Martin"
        and have met several professionals from
        Pakistan who are here to get advance
        training. And I do get a lot of info about
        Suparco's future plans.

                  Now a serious question. How much has Pakistan paid Russia to launch the BADR-B satellite.

                  Are Russians really the cheapest in the market? Wouldn't China be cheaper? Whats holding up Russians from sending that sattelite up? Anybody have any info?

                    The satellite was sent to Russia in 1998,
                    at that time China did not have any planned
                    launch. But, now since the russian setellite
                    that will be launch with BADR-B has developed
                    some problems, the launch has been delayed.
                    Currently, russia is the cheapest one and
                    has more advance technology then china.
