Abstract

Santa Clara University's Robotic Systems Laboratory is developing the Intelligent Responsive Imaging Spacecraft (IRIS) for autonomous multi-system responsive operations and high spectral resolution Earth imaging. IRIS will interact with an extended system of land, sea, air, and space-based robotic and human elements to observe transient events on the ground. Specifically, IRIS will provide critical imaging and communications services to detect, monitor, and respond to harmful algal blooms in shallow water regions. Students are responsible for all aspects of development. This paper will describe the mission concept and its use of advanced small satellite technologies to perform multi-system responsive space operations.
