At the recent 4S Small Satellite Conference in Malta on 2 June 2016, Media Lario presented a paper and presentation on how its STREEGO high resolution multi-spectral small satellite payload can be used as a disaster detection and early warning system. The paper describes a new payload concept called HyperSTREEGO which is a combination of high resolution camera (STREEGO) with wide swath, 45° forward looking viewfinder (Panorama) with sophisticated on-board image processing. The instrument is a space-borne autonomous sensor capable of finding ground anomalies (forest fires, floods, land slides, etc.) and of transmitting only the high resolution images of interest.
