Description of TECHSAT 1B Satellite:

Techsat-1B was a 70 kg microsatellite built by the Haifa based Technion Institute of Technology in Israel to replace Techsat-1A which failed to reach orbit in 1995. The three axis stabilized satellite has as its primary payload a multispectral push-broom CCD scanner offering 12 m ground resolution. It was launched from the Baikonur cosmodrome aboard a Zenit rocket into a 821 km sun-synchronous orbit with FASAT-B, TMSAT, SAFIR, WESTPAC and Resurs O2-1. The satellite transmitted a 9600-baud burst every 30 seconds lasting 3 seconds on one of the two downlinks at 435.225 MHz or 435.325 MHz.
