KAISTSAT-4 : A Progress Report

  • Published : 2004.04.01


KAISTSAT-4 is to be launched in August 2003 into an orbit at 800 km altitude with the intended mission shared between astrophysics and space physics. The primary objective of its astrophysics mission is to provide spectral sky survey data of hot Galactic plasmas in the far-ultraviolet wavelength range. Far-Ultraviolet Imaging Spectrograph (FIMS) is sensitive to emission line fluxes in 900 - 1175 $\AA$ and 1335 - 1750 $\AA$. (omitted)
