Craig-CooningBoeing Co. will build its first commercial batch of the company’s 502 Phoenix small satellites under a contract to carry HySpecIQ‘s hyperspectral payload into space.

Two Phantom Phoenix-based satellites are scheduled for launch in 2018 to perform command and control operations, image processing and imagery data storage, Boeing said Wednesday.

“Our 502 Phoenix is well-suited for a range of missions that includes electro-optical imaging and remote sensing, space situational awareness and satellite communications,” said Craig Cooning, president of Boeing’s network and space systems business unit.

“This combines a flexible satellite system design with an innovative business model, demonstrating our commitment to evolve our satellite portfolio into adjacent markets,“ he added.

The hyperspectral imaging system works to identify objects and materials using spectral color bands.
