The IRIS B (Intelligent Remote-Sensing and Internet Satellite) nanosatellite is a technology demonstration 3U CubeSat of the National Cheng Kung University (NCKU) of Tainan, Taiwan.

The mission of the IRIS-B CubeSat is to demonstrate in-orbit intelligence remote sensing data processing. The mission concept is to use a low-cost remote sensing payload combined with artificial intelligence technology to enable high-end remote sensing satellites to lock the ROI with an efficient image acquisition approach.

The primary mission objective of the IRIS-B mission is remote sensing. The Remote Sensing Instrument (RSI) has RGB channels that operate in push broom mode. It has onboard processing capability, allowing for early evaluation by downloading processed geophysical data with coordinate information rather than raw data. Furthermore, it can accelerate Artificial Intelligence (AI) to enable the efficient implementation of AI Algorithms in orbit.
