[05-Nov-18] Overview of SOCON's first spacecraft - the SeaHawk CubeSat satellite. Manufactured by Clyde Space Ltd (Glasgow, Scotland), the SeaHawk Cubesat will be outfitted with a low-cost, multispectral, ocean color sensor (called Hawkeye) with spatial characteristics comparable to SeaWiFS. Hawkeye will collect near-synoptic color data in open- ocean to coastal-margin to near-shore terrestrial environments and will serve as a proxy for PACE's Ocean Color Instrument (OCI).
