... is an advanced hyperspectral instrument for the Multiple User System for Earth Sensing (MUSES) platform by Teledyne Brown Engineering (TBE) on Board of the International Space Station (ISS). With a minimum of optical components the robust and compact optical design covers the visible and near-infrared regions of the electromagnetic spectrum at a high resolution. The mechanical and optical characteristics qualify DESIS for applications like farming, forestry, land cover analysis and multitemporal environmental monitoring. Data will be jointly provided by TBE and DLR to serve commercial and scientific partners starting in 2018.
DESIS - a spectrometer for the ISS
On june the 29th, 2018 DESIS will be launched from Cape Canaveral to the ISS
DESIS has a sophisticated optical design: a compact structure with a minimum number of optical components.
DESIS is intended to supply hyperspectral data to support scientific, humanitarian and commercial goals.
