Abstract
  • The Hyperspectral Imager for the Coastal Ocean (HICO) is the first spaceborne hyperspectral sensor designed specifically for the coastal ocean and estuarial, riverine, or other shallow-water areas. The HICO generates hyperspectral images, primarily over the 400–900nm spectral range, with a ground sample distance of ≈90m (at nadir) and a high signal-to-noise ratio. The HICO is now operating on the International Space Station (ISS). Its cross-track and along-track fields of view are 42km (at nadir) and 192 km, respectively, for a total scene area of 8000km². The HICO is an innovative prototype sensor that builds on extensive experience with airborne sensors and makes extensive use of commercial off-theshelf components to build a space sensor at a small fraction of the usual cost and time. Here we describe the instrument’s design and characterization and present early images from the ISS.

Funding Statement (additional comments about funding)
  • The HICO was built by the NRL as a fast-response program to seize a flight opportunity on the ISS. This rapid response was made possible by the Innovative Naval Prototype (INP) program sponsored by the Office of Naval Research. The HICO was integrated and flown under the direction of the Department of Defense’s Space Test Program. We gratefully acknowledge support from National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency for the launch and support of the HREP on the ISS.
