UK-DMC-1: Launched 2003

UK-DMC-1 was an earth observation satellite for the then BNSC (now the UK Space Agency). It carried a 32m imager operating in 3 spectral bands.

UK-DMC-1 operated within the Disaster Monitoring Constellation, the first Earth observation constellation of low cost small satellites providing daily images for applications including global disaster monitoring. 

UK-DMC-1 demonstrated the first use of the Interplanetary Internet v6 in space via an experimental payload called the CLEO Cisco router.  It also demonstrated the first water propulsion system in space.
