Multispectral Camera on Spacecraft
A multispectral imager built
by FluxData Inc. of Rochester, N.Y., was launched into space aboard the Japanese
HTV-2 transfer vehicle on Jan. 22, 2011. Headed to the International Space Station
(ISS), it will be installed in the Window Observation Research Facility by the ISS
crew. A component of the ISS Agricultural Camera, it was developed by students and
faculty at the University of North Dakota in Grand Forks in support of their Upper
Midwest Aerospace Consortium research efforts.
