The KOMPSAT 7 (KOrean Multi Purpose SATellite) satellite is designed to provide high resolution imagery for precise Earth observation from low polar Earth orbit. The satellite is equipped with a very precise optical imaging camera and a high-resolution infrared sensor, which enables it to observe fires, volcanic activity and urban heat islands during day and night and under all weather conditions. K7 is the successor of the previous model KOMPSAT-3A.
The Kompsat 7 Power Supply Unit (PSU) is a unique power supply system designed and manufactured by ASP-Equipment. It consists of two electronic units housed in a mechanical enclosure. The PSU is used to supply secondary power to the panchromatic band camera and the multispectral camera. It has 24 high precision power outputs, as well as a TM/TC interface and regulated heater outputs. The power supply consists of a total of 8 individually designed, manufactured and tested modules and highlights ASP’s ability to contribute to state-of-the-art spacecraft power with outstanding product solutions.
