HyTI Selected for NASA CubeSat Launch Initiative
It was announced yesterday that HyTI is among the selections in the latest round of NASA’s CubeSat Launch Initiative program. HyTI is a collaboration between the University of Hawaii/HSFL, JPL, Saraniasat Inc., and others to design, build, test and fly a 6U CubeSat in low Earth orbit. Among the technologies to be demonstrated include a hyperspectral imager being developed by HSFL and the Hawaii Institute of Geophysics and Planetology, and high performance on-board computing. The HyTI proposal was awarded and officially started last year.
