GISTDA THEOS EO satellite payload in orbit

"On October 1, 2008 at 06:37:16 UTC, THEOS - THailand Earth Observation System
was launched successfully from the Yasny, Russia by the Russian DNEPR-1 rocket.
After the rocket was launched from the underground silo, its four engines were
ignited, sending the rocket skyward directly to space. The satellite separated from
the rocket successfully and was deployed in a sun synchronous orbit at an altitude
of about 820 km.
The THEOS satellite payload features both high resolution in panchromatic mode
and wide field of view in multispectral mode which has been tailored to Thailand's
specific needs with a worldwide imaging capability."
