Hodoyoshi 1 [University of Tokyo]
Hodoyoshi 1 is an experimental earth-observing micro-satellite built by the University of Tokyo. It has a 6.8 m ground resolution.
Hodoyoshi 1 was developed by Axelspace in cooperation with Next-generation Space Systems Technology Research Association (NESTRA). It carries an optical system for obtaining images with the ground resolution of 6.7 m. It is equipped with CCD sensors with spectral bands of blue, green, red and near-infrared respectively. Near-infrared data will enable to understand the growth situation of plants, which is undetectable only with visible bands.
Hodoyoshi 1 was launched piggy-back with a larger satellite and three other small satellites on a Dnepr rocket from the Yasni (Dombarovsky) cosmodrome in late 2014.
