The main objectives of KOMPSAT-2 mission are:

  • Providing of imagery in case of massive natural disasters to assist in countermeasure activities
  • Acquisition of high-res images for Geographic Information Systems (GIS)
  • Control over natural resources , forestry management
  • Researches in different fields

In October 2015 Ministry of Science, ICT and Future Planning together with KARI decided not to continue the mission for observation purposes. The satellite still operates on the orbit and the obtained information is going to be used for research until the end of the life cycle.
