OFEQ 11, also known as OFEK 11, is part of the Ofeq family of reconnaissance satellites designed and built by Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) for the Israeli Ministry of Defense. OFEQ-11 was launched on 13 September 2016 from Palmachim Airbase in Israel, two years after the OFEK-10 was launched. It was delivered using the Shavit launcher. Compared to its predecessor, the new satellite features a new imaging system called "Jupiter High-Resolution Imaging" with resolution increased to 0.5 meter, and uses a new satellite platform - OPSAT-3000 - which is a derivative of the satellite bus used in TecSAR. According to reports the launch initially looked like a success, but about 90 minutes later, engineers realized that while the satellite had entered orbit, not all systems were functioning or responding to instructions. However, after several days of repairs, the satellite was operational and taking high-quality pictures.
