Leonardo Spaceborne Infrared Payloads for Earth Observation: SLSTRs for Copernicus Sentinel 3 and PRISMA Hyperspectral Camera for PRISMA Satellite
Leonardo has been involved in the realization of several infrared payloads for Earth Observation since 1990. Among the currently in orbit operative instruments we find the two SLSTRs and PRISMA. The SLSTRs are high accuracy radiometers which provide Sea Surface Temperature (SST) data continuity with respect to previous (A)ATSRs, in order to serve climatology over the next 20-years, in the frame of the ESA Sentinel-3 mission, which is part of the Copernicus program. The PRISMA Program is the first ASI (Agenzia Spaziale Italiana) optical hyperspectral mission for Earth observation. It is based on a high spectral resolution spectrometer operating in the VIS-SWIR channels optically integrated with a panchromatic camera.
