The UK-DMC 2 satellite will gather wide-angle, medium-resolution images with optical payloads able to see objects about 72 feet [22 m] across. The spacecraft join four existing disaster monitoring satellites with less-capable imaging equipment. Those payloads are owned by agencies in the U.K., Nigeria, Algeria and China. UK-DMC 2 increase the fleet's total imaging capacity twenty-fold, according to DMC International Imaging Ltd., the firm that markets the constellation's products. Officials use the constellation's images for mapping, urban planning, resource management, security and disaster relief purposes. UK-DMC 2 weighs about 212 pounds [96 kg] and is a follow-on to a 6-year-old first-generation disaster monitoring satellite.
