This research aims to provide a solution for energy-efficient AI-based on-board processing of hyperspectral imagery supporting automated early detection of fire smoke. We propose using modified and resampled MODIS imagery data that emulates the swath as well as spectral, spatial, and radiometric resolution of HyperScout-2 channel 1 hyperspectral imagery. In doing so, we intent to provide a solution that meets on-board processing limitations and up/downlink data transfer restrictions of the SASAT-1/ HyperScout-2/ with Intel’s Myriad X VPU chip.
