Hyperspectral Payload for PRISMA Programme
As stated in the PRISMA (PRecursore IperSpettrale della Missione Applicativa) Mission is: “a pre-operative small Italian hyperspectral mission, aiming to qualify the technology, contribute to develop applications and provide products to institutional and scientific users for environmental observation and risk management …”. The PRISMA is a system conceived for Earth observation having the following main objectives: 1) in orbit demonstration and qualification of an Italian state-of-the-art hyperspectral camera; 2) implementation of a pre-operative mission; 3) validation of end-to-end data processing to be able to develop new application to manage the environmental risks and Earth observation based on high spectral resolution images. The PRISMA satellite, placed in a sun synchronous orbit (SSO), will focus primarily on the European area of interest, enabling the download of the data on two ground stations located in Italy. Once the hyperspectral images are downloaded on ground, they are archived and processed up to level 2.
