EnMAP is a future - first German optical - earth observation satellite mission. The satellite will provide valuable, high-quality scientific data with 232 spectral bands from 420 nm to 2450 nm and a ground resolution of 30 x 30 m².
Primary mission goal is the measuring and analyzing a wide range of numerous ecosystem parameters which describe vital processes on the earth’s surface relating to agriculture, forestry, soil and geological environments, as well as coastal zones and inland waters. EnMAP data will serve to measure and model key dynamic ecosystem processes and will make a significant contribution to comprehension of the complex system "Earth".
The mission will be realized in a co-operation between GFZ, Kayser-Threde, OHB and DLR. GSOC will operate the satellite during LEOP, commissioning phase and routine operations.
Launch Date planned:
3,1 m × 2,0 m × 1,7 m
