Full Name PLATiNO X-SAR Status Being developed
Instrument Agencies TAS-i, ASI, SITAEL Maturity
Instrument Type Imaging microwave radars Geometry TBD
Instrument Technology Imaging radar (SAR) Sampling Imaging
Data Access Data Format
Measurements and Applications Micro-SAR payload from Thales Alenia Space Italia. The mission envisages a first phase at 619 km operating in passive mode and a second phase at 410 km operating in active mode: the orbit transfer is performed making use of SITAEL HT100 Electric Thruster and validates the platform orbit maneuvering capabilities. Thanks to the extremely high power PLATiNO platform is able to provide, PLATiNO-1 can guarantee a scan time per orbit nowadays unmatched in the Micro-SAR sector.
