Condor-E
Small spacecraft for remote sensing of the land and sea surface

The Condor-E small spacecraft (SSC) with a synthetic aperture radar (SAR) is designed to obtain, store and transmit high-resolution microwave remote-sensing (RS) data to ground receiving and processing stations.

The SAR provides around-the-clock all-weather acquisition of the Earth's surface.

Components of the Condor-E SSC with SAR:

Unified spacecraft bus (USB):

  • onboard control system;
  • data gathering system;
  • data transfer system (DTS);
  • propulsion system;
  • thermal control system;
  • power generation system.

Synthetic aperture radar.
