ST Electronics Showcases AgilSpace™ Solutions at Singapore Airshow 2016
With Highlights from TeLEOS-1, Singapore’s 1st Commercial Earth Observation Satellite
Singapore, 16 February 2016 — Singapore Technologies Electronics Limited (ST Electronics) will be exhibiting AgilSpace™, its signature brand for its emerging space business solutions with TeLEOS-1 as the centerpiece showcase at the Singapore Airshow 2016.
TeLEOS-1 is Singapore’s first Commercial Earth Observation Satellite designed and built in Singapore at the ST Electronics Satellite Systems Centre. On display include selected test images with iconic places in Singapore such as Changi Airport, Sentosa Island as well as overseas.
“As we begin to receive test images taken by TeLEOS-1, we continue to calibrate the camera to capture better focused and clearer images. It has been an eventful journey for ST Electronics as we have been able to meaningfully contribute to Singapore’s space industry by acquiring capabilities that encompass satellite design, manufacturing, launch and in-orbit testing. We hope to use this knowledge and experience to design and build more advanced satellites in Singapore,” said Mr Lee Fook Sun, Deputy CEO & President, Defence Business of ST Engineering and President of ST Electronics.

With a mean revisit time of 12-16 hours and coverage of the equatorial belt with up to 6 imaging opportunities within a day, TeLEOS-1 is capable of providing down to one metre resolution panchromatic imagery, with a 12km swath width. TeLEOS-1, being the first remote sensing commercial satellite operating in the Near Equatorial Orbit at +/- 15 degree around the equatorial belt, has the competitive advantage of having more imaging opportunities compared to other polar orbit remote sensing satellites over this region. Business prospects for TeLEOS-1 include applications in maritime security and safety, Humanitarian Aid and Disaster Relief, environmental and resources monitoring and urban planning and infrastructure management. TeLEOS-1 remains on schedule to roll out its first commercial imagery by mid-2016.
