ALOS Satellite Sensor

ALOS Satellite Sensor

The Advanced Land Observing Satellite (ALOS), renamed “Daichi” operated by JAXA (Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency) shifted its operation mode to the low load mode due to power generation precipitation on April 22, 2011, around 7:30 am.

The ALOS satellite onboard observation devices were found turned off. The satellite seems to have exceeded its life after five years. The power generation has been rapidly deteriorating, and cannot currently confirm power generation.

ALOS is one of the world’s largest earth observation satellites whose function was to collect global and high-resolution land observation data and was developed to contribute to the fields of cartography, disaster monitoring, natural resource surveys, and technology development.
