Test hyperspectral camera for dust measurements and study the effect of climate change in the Kluane Lake region.

Description

Test an imaging instrument to collect data on dust measurements and study the effect of climate change in the Kluane Lake region. Evaluate the viability of a new electronic component that shows better resistance to the harsh conditions of space and that could improve the cost-effectiveness and performance of future CubeSat computers. custom-designed 1U hyperspectral imager. The onboard instrument will gather spectral measurements in the visible and near infrared (VNIR) band, with the added option to include other spectral regions as well (e.g. SWIR).
