|Name||FOREST-3 (Forest Observation and Recognition Experimental Smallsat Thermal Detector)|
|Units or mass||6U|
|Status||not launched, expected in 2023|
FOREST-3 will be the first satellite of a multipurpose nanosatellite constellation with an expected revisit time of 30 minutes by 2026.
FOREST-3 will provide life and asset-saving early warnings about wildfires by monitoring three channels in the Thermal Infrared spectrum. In addition, it will also have an optical imaging instrument and onboard graphics card. Thus, FOREST-3 will be capable of on-orbit fire detection as well as stacking multiple images on the spacecraft.
