Ministry of Environment and Korea Water Resources Corporation to develop water-resources/water-disaster medium-sized satellite'인공위성으로 물 재해 빠르게 파악한다'

[The Hwankyung Ilbo] The Ministry of Environment and the Korea Water Resources Corporation announced that they will launch a water-resources/water-disaster medium-sized satellite project with a total project cost of about 138.4 billion won.

This project is to promote measures to cope with climate change and water related disasters, and passed the preliminary feasibility study of the government on July 19 this year.

The plan will be finalized by the end of this year and will be completed in 2025 when the project is launched in earnest after deliberation by the National Space Commission next year.

This project will develop 'Korean type water disaster satellite' which can observe the water resources and disasters across the Korean Peninsula with domestic technology.

The satellite is equipped with an image radar that can identify 10m sized terrestrial objects and can observe 365 days regardless of bad weather or night.

When this satellite is developed, it can be used in various fields such as observation of floods and droughts, monitoring of water resources, monitoring of green and red tides, monitoring of marine environments (ocean currents, oil spills, etc.) and monitoring of crops growth.

“The satellites are expected to play a pivotal role in realizing integrated water management that considers water quantity and water quality management, drought and flood prevention in a single coherent system,” said an official from the Ministry of Environment.
