DMSat 1

DMSat 1 [UTIAS]

The DMSat-1 satellite is a 15-kilogram earth-monitoring microsatellite developed by the Space Flight Laboratory (SFL) for the Mohammend Bin Rashid Space Centre (MBRSC) in Dubai.

SFL’s Next-generation Earth Monitoring and Observation (NEMO) platform technology, which incorporates high performance ground target tracking capability, is a key enabler for the mission.

DMSat-1 leverages past developments at SFL for a rapidly developed mission that will incorporate two payloads. It is based on the NEMO-AM satellite. The primary payload is a multispectral polarimeter used to monitor aerosols – fine particles of liquid and solids in the upper atmosphere normally caused by man-made sources, but also correlating to natural phenomena such as dust storms. The secondary instrument is a pair of spectrometers that will enable MBRSC to detect greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide and methane over the United Arab Emirates.
