ORMOSAT-3 is successfully launched from Vandenberg launch site, U.S.A.

The "FORMOSAT-3 Program" is an international collaboration project between Taiwan and the US with joint efforts of Taiwan's National Space Organization (NSPO) and University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR) of the US, the goal of the project is to develop advanced technology for the real-time monitoring of the global climate. This project is targeted to place six micro-satellites into six different orbits at 700~800 kilometer above the earth ground. These satellites orbit around the earth to form a low-earth-orbit constellation that will receive signals transmitted by the 24 US GPS satellites. The satellite observation covers the entire global atmosphere and ionosphere, providing over 2,500 global sounding data per day...more

2004
FORMOSAT-2 is successfully launched from Vandenberg launch site, U.S.A.
FORMOSAT-2 is successfully launched from Vandenberg launch site, U.S.A.

The first remote sensing satellite developed by National Space Organization (NSPO), FORMOSAT-2, successfully launched on May 21, 2004 onto the Sun-synchronous orbit located at 891 kilometers above ground. The main mission of FORMOSAT-2 is to conduct remote sensing imaging over Taiwan and on terrestrial and oceanic regions of the entire earth. The images captured by FORMOSAT-2 during daytime can be used for land distribution, natural resources research, environmental protection, disaster prevention and rescue work etc. When the satellite travels to the eclipsed zone, it will observe natural phenomena such as lighting in the upper atmosphere. The observation data can be used for further scientific experiments. Therefore, FORMOSAT-2 carries both "remote sensing" and "scientific observation" tasks in its mission....more
