It is so the first one of its art completely realized in Turkey, and the second indigenously developed remote sensing satellite after BILSAT-1.WEB,weblink TÃœBÄ°TAK UZAY, RASAT Hakkında, Turkish, 2012-12-21, yes,weblink" title="web.archive.org/web/20121227061441weblink">weblink 2012-12-27, NEWS,weblink CNN Türk, Ä°lk yerli gözlem uydusu Rasat uzayda, 2011-08-17, Turkish, 2012-12-21, Financed by the State Planning Organization (DPT) and designed by TÃœBÄ°TAK UZAY without any international know-how transfer, RASAT was launched from Dombarovskiy Cosmodrome, near Yasny in Russia by a Dnepr space launch vehicle at 08:12:20 UTC on August 17, 2011 along with seven other satellites Sich-2 and BPA-2 of Ukraine, NigeriaSat-2 and NigeriaSat-X of Nigeria, EduSat of India as well as AprizeSat-5 and AprizeSat-6 of Italy. RASAT was placed 16 minutes and 9 seconds after the lift-off into a low Earth orbit of {{convert|685|km|mi|abbr=on}}. The first signal from RASAT was received in the space center of Andøya Rocket Range, northern Norway at 09:44.04 UTC.

Mission

Projected for a mission duration of three years, RASAT is on a sun-synchronous geocentric orbit. Its instruments, supplied by the South Korean space technology company Satrec Initiative, allow a spatial resolution of {{convert|7.5|m|ft|abbr=on}} at panchromatic band and {{convert|15|m|ft|abbr=on}} at multispectral band. RASAT carries out various civil applications on mapping and planning, disaster management, ecosystem monitoring, environmental control, landcover survey and coastal zone management. Additionally, RASAT is used to test a custom designed on-board computer "BiLGE" capable of using SpaceWire network, a solid-state processor "GEZGİN-2" (an abbreviation for "GErçek Zamanda Görüntü İşleyeN") for real-time image compression using algorithm of JPEG 2000 and a telecommunication system "Treks" of X band transmitter module with 100 MB/s data transfer rate and 7 Watt power.NEWS,weblink Hürriyet, Türk uydusunun uzaydan çektiği ilk görüntüler, 2011-10-18, Turkish, 2012-12-21,

Images

The first images were received in Ankara on October 8, 2011. With images captured by the satellite between 2012 and 2014, a "mosaic map" of Turkey was compiled. More than 3,000 images showing an area of {{convert|30|x|30|km|mi|abbr=on}} each were used for the map. The map images are available ay the website "gezgin.gov.tr" in the image file formats of .ecw (high image resolution: 9 GB, low image resolution: 50 MB), .jp2 (21.8 GB, 33 MB), .tif (35.7 GB, 58.1 MB), .img (45.6 GB, 85.7 MB) and KMZ (11.3 MB). The map is distributed to governmental agencies, particularly to the State Hydraulic Works (DSÄ°) and Mineral Research and Exploration (MTA). In 2013, three-dimensional relief maps of Turkey created by RASAT are offered on the web. Customers are able to order and download their actual map requirements.As of November 15, 2015, RASAT took images of {{convert|9546200|km2|sqmi|abbr=on}} Earth surface on 22,699 orbitings since its launch on August 17, 2011.A research project, named "Geoportal", was launched by Ministry of Development on January 15, 2013 with an application run-time of four years. Images were uploaded on August 19, 2014 to the portal, which is open to use by public services and universities. As of November 17, 2015, 6,517 processed images captured by RASAT were uploaded to GEZGIN portal.
