Abstract

ASNARO (Advanced Satellite with New system ARchitecture for Observation) system outline including payload characteristics and bus architecture is presented in this paper. ASNARO, which is being developed by NEC and USEF under the contract with NEDO, is a LEO satellite for the earth observation by optical sensor in sub-meter class. The bus module of the ASNARO is highly adaptive for various missions such as remote sensing by optical sensor or Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) sensor, and for the future small satellite market. ASNARO imaging capability of Ground Sample Distance (GSD) from 504km altitude is less than 0.5m for the panchromatic band. The new silicon carbide mirror, named NTSIC, is employed for the primary mirror of the telescope.
