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 of the Copernicus mission related to ESA Sentinel-3 space component to provide Sea Surface Temperature (SST) data continuity respect to previous (A)ATSRs for climatology for the next 20-years. Sentinel-3A and 3B have been launched respectively in 2016 and 2018 and operate in the same orbit with 140° phase delay, while Sentinel-3C and 3D are in the development phase and foreseen to be launched in the timeframe 2023 to 2028. The PRISMA Program is the first ASI (Agenzia Spaziale Italiana) optical hyperspectral mission launched in March 2019 for Earth observation. It is based on a mono-payload single satellite realized by an industrial consortium, where Leonardo has the full responsibility of the hyperspectral payload composed of a high spectral resolution spectrometer operating in VIS-SWIR channels optically integrated with a panchromatic camera.
