The Highly Integrated Broadband Imaging Spectrometer (HIBRIS) provides simultaneous global thermal characterization and detailed imagery in the near infrared bands from space. The main purpose of HIBRIS is to take detailed hyperspectral surveys in the near-infrared range, and contextualize them by placing them in a global thermal infrared map. This makes HIBRIS a suitable instrument for earth observation and planetary surveys and characterization from space.
HIBRIS combines the following technologies into one instrument:
Using cosine’s Highly Integrated Payload Suite (HIPS) technology for integration and miniaturisation, the volume, mass and power requirements are significantly reduced.
