Ofeq-10, also known as Ofek-10 (Horizon in Hebrew), is part of the Ofeq family of reconnaissance satellites designed and built by Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) for the Israeli Ministry of Defense.

Satellite description

Ofek-10 is an upgraded variant of Ofeq-8, which employs a high-resolution synthetic-aperture radar (SAR) that is capable of observation at night and through clouds.[1][2] The satellite's price was US$300 million. The satellite weighs 400 kg.[3]


Ofeq-10 was launched on 9 April 2014, at 19:06:02 UTC from the Palmachim Airbase in Israel, four years after Ofeq-9's launch. It was delivered using a Shavit launcher.[4] Ofeq-10 was launched westward in a retrograde orbit.[5]
