section title: technology summary
The Earth Observing-1 (EO-1) Mission is flying three advanced land imaging instruments and seven revolutionary crosscutting spacecraft technologies. The three advanced imaging instruments will lead to a new generation of lighter weight, higher performance and lower cost Landsat-type imaging instruments for the Earth Science Enterprise. Additionally, the EO-1 Mission has flight validated a number of crosscutting spacecraft subsystem technologies which will enable future Earth and Space Science missions to be conducted using smaller, lower weight and reduced power spacecraft buses. See the EO-1 Instrument Image Map below to learn more about it.
