CubeSat to lift veil on our environment’s extremes
05 December 2018
Australia's national science agency, CSIRO, today announced that it would be extending its Earth observation capabilities by acquiring Australia's first CubeSat designed to detect invisible infrared light.
To be known as CSIROSat-1, the new satellite will allow researchers from CSIRO and other institutions to 'see' features that can't otherwise be seen using satellite imagery in the visible spectrum.
