Rafael to Unveil Unveil its New LiteSat Family
New Delhi, Mar 17
Rafael Advanced Defense Systems Ltd. will be showcasing new satellite capabilities at Satellite 2022. This marks the first time Rafael is participating in Satellite 2022 and will be showcasing new technologies and capabilities in the Washington, D.C. based space exhibition.
Throughout the exhibition Rafael will be displaying the LiteSatTM HR2C (Very High Resolution & High Revisit Constellation) which features unique capabilities in the global space market. The LiteSat HR2C is specifically designed to enable the effective deployment of a large constellation with true high revisit capabilities. With almost UAV-like potential from space, it can complete highly demanding tactical missions that require revisit rates of less than 10 minutes. It is the first end-to-end space Intelligence, Surveillance, Reconnaissance (ISR) platform designed from the ground up to provide military-grade, very high resolution, high revisit, and multi-sensor capabilities. LiteSat HR2C provides 30 cm resolution through an Electro-Optical payload fused with a Synthetic-aperture Radar (SAR) payload (in the same satellite). These unique capabilities function in a highly performance-to-cost effective package that enables deployment of a large constellation in order to achieve unprecedented high persistence tactical mission capabilities.
