EgyptSat-A is an Egyptian device designed for remote sensing of the Earth. It is equipped with modern optical-electronic equipment with high spatial resolution. The spacecraft can shoot in the visible and infrared spectra in the panchromatic (black and white) and multispectral ranges. The maximum swath is 1,400 kilometers.
The satellite is also capable of conducting detailed reconnaissance. For detailed shooting, the resolution is one meter in the panchromatic range and four meters in the multispectral one. The satellite is now expected to be launched on February 21, 2019.
