    The one China built for us, it has 1m resolution PAN which is very respectable for a first spy satellite.

    1m is actually very good but in purchase, things can't be termed as respectable or primitive. If you guys would have fabricated lenses or microprocessors that was another thing but here, nothing to boast of.

    China is able to build reconnaissance satellites of resolution upto 0.4 meters.

    You misunderstood, there is no boasting over its manufacture, but there is satisfaction over having gained a significant capability that few nations have.

    And regarding China, our cooperation is just starting. Right now we have access to the military version of Beidou, the only country other than China to have access.

    Seen from public news
    Civilian use 0.3 m
    The highest resolution for civilian use can reach 0.1 meters
    Military use is below 0.1 meters

    The maximum resolution of the export type is limited to 0.5~1 meters.

    Pak’s next satellite seems to be able to choose satellites with a resolution below 1 m.:-)

    SUPARCO is using Satellite Remote Sensing (SRS) and Geographic Information System (GIS) for gathering of crop statistics on country wide basis. This system not only provides temporal and synoptic view of the cropped area but also provides quick and precise crop statistics.

    In this context, SUPARCO is issuing monthly bulletin to provide an account of the activities of SUPARCO in the field of monitoring of crops through use of SRS/GIS technology.

    55 YEARS AGO TODAY.

    President Ayub khan presided over a meeting of Pakistan's space agency SUPARCO.
    It was decided that Pakistan will share their newly acquired expertise in the field of assembling and launching small rockets with Turkey and Iran.
    At the time Turkey and Iran had no functional space programs,while Pakistan had already launched 8 weather sounding rockets and was planning further launches.
