Vega Flight VV14 - PRISMA - February, 2019
« on: 08/26/2018 12:34 PM »
PRISMA (Hyperspectral Precursor of the Application Mission) is an Earth Observation system with innovative, electro-optical instrumentation that combine a hyperspectral sensor with a medium-resolution panchromatic camera.

The advantages of this combination are that in addition to the usual capability of observation based on recognising the geometric characteristics of the scene there are hyperspectral sensors which determine the chemical-physical composition of the objects present on the scene.

This offers the scientific community and users many applications in the field of environmental monitoring, resource management, crop classification, pollution control and other things. In addition, there may be other applications in the field of National Security.

PRISMA takes advantage of previous investments made by ASI in the field of "small missions" (for example, AGILE), hyperspectral payloads (for example, Hypseo, JHM), satellite platforms (MITA/PRIMA) and receiving and remote sensing data processing centres (COSMO-SkyMed and CNM) that have given the opportunity to national industries to acquire competences and develop/consolidate vitally important products.

some messages (or rumors ?) says: Mohammed VI-B (moroccan spy-satellite) would fly in Nov. 2018. (that would be VV13)

It is better to wait to have a reliable source.

Moroccan media is reporting that the North African country’s second high-resolution Earth observation satellite, the Mohammed VI-B, is due to be launched on an Arianespace launch vehicle from the Kourou Space Centre in French Guiana in November 2018 on either the Vega or Soyuz ST-A Fregat-M satellite launch vehicles.

It's just like last year when Aeolus was to have flown on VV-11 until the first Mohammed VI satellite was secretly manifested, causing Aeolus to slip into the following year.
Because the Falcon Heavy Test Flight was successful, it has inspired thousands of people to consider changing the future of space travel.

PRISMA will possibly fly on VV-14, now that Mohammed VI B is manifested for this mission.
