HySIS (Hyper Spectral Imaging Spectrometer) is a small Indian earth observation satellite to study the earth’s surface in visible, near infrared and shortwave infrared regions of the electromagnetic spectrum. 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.
