You might have missed the launch but get your tin snips, wire cutters and soldering iron out

NovaSAR mk1, to operate on the upper S-band.


The satellite, as presently configured, will operate in the S-band (3.2 gigahertz), giving a best resolution of 6m with a swath width of 15-20km. Future variants will go to the higher-frequency X-band and sense features on the ground as small as a metre across, and less.

On this model, later satellites will use the higher X-Band for better resolution, but (I assume) less hours in the day.
