DubaiSat-2 is an electro-optical earth observation satellite system with a Ground Sampling Distance (GSD) of 1m at 600km sun-synchronous orbit. The mission objectives are:
- To develop a small satellite system, less than 300kg, for earth observation.
- To provide electro-optical image data, that can be commercialized, of the UAE and other areas with a spatial resolution of 1m PAN and 4m MS.
- To develop and implement new technologies, not used in DubaiSat-1, that can be used in future space programs.
- To continue man power training for UAE’s space program.
