PRISMA image

Overview

PRISMA (“PRecursore IperSpettrale della Missione Applicativa”) is a hyperspectral electro-optical sensor developed for the Italian Space Agency (ASI) in the frame of the PRISMA – a pre-operative small Italian hyperspectral mission-, to qualify the technology, develop applications and provide products to scientists for environmental observation
and risk management .


The PRISMA mission has been conceived for in orbit demonstration and qualification of an Italian state-of-the-art hyperspectral imager, as well as for the validation of end-to-end data processing and the development of new applications for Earth observation based on high spectral resolution images.


Leonardo has a crucial role in PRISMA since the company is in charge of the hyperspectral imager, the star trackers, the solar array and the Power Control and Distributed Unit (PCDU).
