SSTL-S1

The SSTL-S1 satellite is identical to the three DMC3 satellites in the TripleSat Constellation, launched in 2015.  It has a mass of 450kg and is capable of acquiring multiple targets in one pass utilising spot, strip and mosaic imaging modes and 45 degree off-pointing agility for a range of applications including urban planning, agricultural monitoring, land classification, natural resource management and disaster monitoring.  The very high resolution imager on board has been designed by SSTL and will provide sub-one metre resolution images in panchromatic mode and sub-four metre resolution images in multispectral mode, with a swath width of about 24km.  

In Februrary 2018, Twenty First Century Aerospace Technology Co Ltd (21AT) of Beijing signed a contract to lease data capacity from the satellite.
