Pathfinder toward a future ocean-observing constellation targeting the Portuguese Atlantic region


Pathfinder toward a future ocean-observing constellation, which will operate in a 500 km Sun-Synchronous orbit, targeting the Portuguese Atlantic region.

AEROS features a miniaturized, high-resolution Hyperspectral Imager (HSI), a 5MP RGB camera, and a Software Defined Radio (SDR) to interface with Argos, a globally distributed system of remote platforms that collect and relay oceanographic and meteorological data.

These sensors will facilitate the advancement of Portuguese scientific and technological knowledge, and international space industry partnerships, with data processed and aggregated for end-users in a new web-based Data Analysis Center (DAC).
