ASP-NEWSGerman EnMAP satellite with „Instrument Power Unit“ from ASP successfully launched on 1. April 20221. April 2022

 EnMAP (Environmental Mapping and Analysis Program) is the first German optical Earth observation mission in orbit.

It will provide high quality hyperspectral image data with 230 spectral channels in the range of solar radiation reflected from the Earth with a high spatial and temporal resolution.

The mission tasks are to measure, derive, and analyze numerous parameters that describe crucial processes at the Earth’s surface. The main goal of the hyperspectral satellite mission EnMAP (Environmental Mapping Analysis Program) is to study a wide range of the Earth’s land surface ecosystem. The hyperspectral instrument registers solar radiation reflected from the Earth from visible light to shortwave infrared. These measurements will enable scientists to make precise statements about the condition of and changes in the Earth’s surface.

The satellite was launched successfully on April 1, 2022, and the mission is designed to last at least five years.
