HySIS (Hyper Spectral Imaging Spectrometer) is a small Indian earth observation satellite developed by ISRO.
The satellite is based on the SSB-2 bus inherited from SARAL. The mission will provide global coverage on repetitive basis to users and also supplement the existing multi-spectral missions. The space-borne Hyper Spectral Imaging Spectrometer (HySIS) will provide earth surface image in VNIR (0.4 to 0.95 m) and SWIR (0.9 to 2.5 m) spectral region in “70+256” contiguous spectral bands in each spectral range with 10 nm bandwidth. It will provide 30 m spatial resolution and a swath of 30 km. Two spectrometers (VNIR and SWIR) are being developed and the integrated payload deck will be delivered for satellite level integration.
