HySpecIQ 1, 2

HySpecIQ 1 and 2 are planned earth observation satellites featuring an high-resolution hyperspectral imaging payload. They are prototypes for a constellation of 12 satellites.

The hyperspectral high-resolution imaging payloads are being developed by HySpecIQ. In December 2021 HySpecIQ selected York Space Systems to manufacture buses and integrate the first two satellites, and BridgeComm to provide optical communications capabilities, a redundant capability for satellites that also will rely on radio frequency links.

The first of these satellites is planned to be launched in 2023 and the second soon after.
