Earth Observation microsatellite



The EagleEye project has been ongoing since 2020 and aims to develop the largest Polish microsatellite for Earth observation. As part of the project, we are responsible for delivering an optical payload that is the largest fully designed and constructed Earth observation telescope in Poland (aperture near 200 mm). The instrument follows Space 4.0 guidelines and European Space Agency methodology. Ultimately, it will enable imaging in the visible (VIS) and near-infrared (NIR) bands with a resolution (GSD) of about 1 meter from the 350 km altitude. The satellite's launch is scheduled for 2024 and will be one of the most important events in the history of the Polish space sector. The EagleEye project is being carried out in a consortium with Creotech Instruments and the Space Research Center of the Polish Academy of Sciences, and is co-financed by NCBiR under the so-called Fast Track.

Project goals

Develop an observation payload that will enable imaging in the VIS and NIR spectral bands with a GSD resolutions of 1,2 m in the VIS from 350 km altitude.

Project results

In-house designed optics

Spatial resolution of 1 m in VIS from 350 km SSO orbit

Athermal design of telescope structure


Use of state-of-the-art materials

Use of COTSand ITAR-FREE elements

Possibility of integration with other sensors (e.g. linear), which can also operate at other wavelengths (e.g. SWIR)
