Demonstrate long-wave infrared imager to monitor water resources.


Demonstrate how high spatial resolution (60 m ground resolution element), high spectral resolution (25 bands) and long-wave infrared image data can be acquired to monitor water resources using a 6U CubeSat. HyTI will map irrigated and rainfed cropland, determine crop water use and establish crop water productivity of major world crops.
