Badr B [SUPARCO]
Badr-B is a follow up microsatellite project of the Pakistani space agency (SUPARCO), to its original Badr-A microsatellite project. Badr-2 is developed in collaboration with UK industry and science institutes. Instruments monitor clouds to high resolution, and atmospheric atomic oxygen. The satellite weighs 68.5kg and is built and designed in Pakistan with some foreign sub-systems. The camera is developed by RAL in the UK. Badr-B was launched with the Meteor-3M 1 meteorological satellite on a Zenit-2 launcher from Baikonur Kosmodrome on the 10th December 2001, into a 996 × 1050 km sun-synchronous orbit inclined at 99.7°. Other piggyback payloads on the same launch were Kompass, Maroc-Tubsat and Reflector.
