Israeli military surveillance satellite. Ofeq-5 was said to be about 33% heavier than its predecessors. Reconnaissance, optical satellite built by IAI for Tsahal, Israel. Launched 2002-2010. Used OPSAT-2000 Bus.

Status: Operational 2002. First Launch: 2002-05-28. Last Launch: 2010-06-22. Number: 4 . Gross mass: 300 kg (660 lb). Height: 2.30 m (7.50 ft).

It was built by IAI/MBT for the Israeli Space Agency and carried an imaging reconnaissance camera. The Ofeq-5 telescope/camera was produced by El-Op Electro-Optic Industries, a subsidiary of Elbit Systems. The system - which acquired images underneath and lateral to the satellite and in swaths ahead of its trajectory - was bigger than that installed on the Ofeq-3 and could produce images with 0.8 meter resolution. The Ofeq-5 had a design life of four years.
