İmece is a Turkish earth observation satellite to obtain sub-meter resolution images with its own electro-optical camera.

İmece Satellite Systems Infrastructure Project, which is included in the 2013 investment program of the TR Ministry of Development with the number 2013K120790; With the experience of BiLSAT, RASAT and GÖKTÜRK-2, the Investment Program supported “Imece Satellite Subsystems Development Project” was initiated in order to establish the infrastructure required for the domestic development of satellite subsystems that can be used in submeter satellites.

Gaining space history by using Sub-Meter Resolution Electro Optical Satellite Camera, Communication System, Star Tracks, Sun Detector, Electric Propulsion System, Response Wheel, Payload Data Record Compression Formatting Unit and New Generation Flight Computer, which will be developed in this context, in high resolution imaging satellites and transform it into economic value.

The İmece Satellite Project, supported under the TÜBITAK 1007 Program, started in 2017 and the satellite is planned to be launched in 2023.
