spectral data can identify important
details within the crops, including
things like relative water content,
nitrogen levels, and the amount
of chlorophyll.
“The improved spectral resolution
compared to what is currently
available, combined with the unique
platform and orbit of the ISS, gives
MUSES the potential to transform
the analysis and availability of
imagery for industries like maritime
environmental awareness, oil and
gas exploration and forestry,” said
John Horack, TBE Vice President,
Space Systems.
Teledyne and DLR expect DESIS to
be operational onMUSES in early
