Imaging technology which could enable more targeted observation of environmental conditions on Earth is being developed in research led at the University of Strathclyde.

The project is investigating the production of a multispectral imaging (MSI) device which is a fraction of the size of conventional instruments. It could be installed in nanosatellites and used to monitor climate change, observe the activity of oceans, detect forest fires or track shipping traffic.
