Abstract
Instead of outsourcing the whole FORMOSAT-2 satellite to a foreign prime contractor, the National Space Organization in Taiwan is stepping ahead to take the full responsibility of consolidating self-reliant space technology capabilities. A newly initiated program FORMOSAT-5 satellite, not only to build a heritage design of a spacecraft bus but also, selfreliantly, to leap a big step toward Remote Sensing Instrument payload development, is sailing on its voyage. Among the payload development effort, an integrated circuit of the kind Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor instead of Charge-coupled Device is chosen as the image sensor playing the lead role for the instrument. Despite the foreseen technical concerns, management issues over scheduling and documentation are constantly emerging owing to the payload development underwent is collaborated by several domestic industries and research centers. Regardless of challenges we may confront with, a carefully planned strategy especially emphasizing on the product realization processes is considered, discussed, and implemented.
