Communications, Ocean and Meteorological Satellite (COMS-1)

Exelis has also provided a meteorological imager to the Korean Aerospace Research Institute. When on-orbit, the imaging radiometer will use data obtained from its five channels to continuously produce images of the Earth's surface, oceans, severe storm development, cloud cover, cloud temperature and height, surface temperature, and water vapor density. It will help the country's weather authorities to work more independently as South Korea's weather forecasts are now relying on U.S. and Japanese satellites.
