The EROS-C3 satellite, manufactured by Israel Aerospace Industries, was launched today (Friday), at 09:20 Israel time, from the launcher "Falcon 9" of the SPACEX company at the Vandenberg Space Force base in California, USA"B.
EROS-C3 is one of the most advanced observation satellites in the world, thanks to the integration of breakthrough technological capabilities that allow very high resolution photography on several channels at the same time. After its launch, the satellite entered its orbit around the Earth and began transmitting data to the ground station. The engineers of the aerospace industry began a series of pre-planned calibrations and tests to verify the integrity and level of performance of the satellite, until it enters full operation in the near future.
The 3C-EROS satellite is part of the OPTSAT3000 series observation satellite family developed and manufactured by the aerospace industry. The high photography capabilities of the satellite make it a pioneer in the field of observation satellites. A camera developed and manufactured by a company is installed in the satellite "Elbit Systems"an advanced lightweight space camera that provides very high resolution performance for government and commercial applications and missions.
Yu"Director of the Aerospace Industry, Amir Peretz: "For the aerospace industry, the sky is not the limit either. The launch of the C3 EROS satellite illustrates our being a pioneer in the worlds of space as well. Israel’s space program relies on an impressive infrastructure of technologies developed in the aerospace industry in cooperation with the defense establishment, the academy and the Ministry of Science and Technology. The products of the satellite launched today and the important findings it will transmit to the ground station will help the aerospace industry to develop space technologies in the civilian field, for the benefit of improving the quality of life in the entire world."
CEO"To the Aerospace Industry, Boaz Levy: " Being the space house of the State of Israel, today’s 3C-EROS satellite launch is another expression of the advanced technological capabilities of the aerospace industry. After a significant process of work on the satellite, in which the best minds of the employees of the aerospace industry worked on its development and production, the satellite began to transmit data to the ground station. IAI works in cooperation with government bodies, academic institutions, associations and entrepreneurs from Israel and abroad"for the promotion of technological achievements, scientific research and the development of future space technologies."
