A NASA study is being conducted for a potential Earth satellite mission that may lead to an imaging spectrometer (visible to shortwave infrared, ~0.4-2.5 microns) and a multi-spectral infrared sensor (8-12 microns), as called for in a recent US National Academies Report
As part of the SBG mission study, the Applications Working Group (AWG) is reaching out to the geology and mineral and energy exploration communities to receive their input on desired data and products.
In addition, there are opportunities to inform or participate on three other working groups studying other aspects of the potential mission:
Finally, JPL is researching qualified suppliers for an architecture trade study in support of the Surface Biology and Geology (SBG) Designated Observable Study Team:
