    ECONOMICS - Turkey paves the way for large satellites plan

    Among those 17 satellites are 6 real-time positioning Satellites to create a regional and small-version of GPS, in case the USA blocks Turkish access to GPS to direct the cruise-missiles to their targets and the targets are too far way to navigate them with INS guidance.

    185 and 300 KM versions are already developed, this year will be tests for 500 km version and in 2014 2.500 KM version will come to service.

    Rasat was already launched last year.
    It had 15 meter resolution in color and 7.5 meter in black-white.
    Göktürk-2 which will be launched this year has 2.5 meter color resolution and will produce much better pictures.

    15 meter color resolution produces such pictures of Los Angeles.
