Led by Derek Woods, Founder and CEO, HyperSat will be finalizing the procurement of two Low-Earth orbit satellites capable of imaging 200+ spectral bands with a sub-10 meter ground sample distance.  These first satellites will form the foundation of what is expected to be an initial fleet of six hyperspectral remote sensing satellites.
