Satellites with high space and spectral resolution have changed the way of considering the environment and environmental phenomena. That is the case of PRISMA (PRecursore IperSpettrale della Missione Applicativa, Hyperspectral Precursor of the Application Mission), an Earth Observation system with state-of-the-art electro-optical instruments, integrating a hyperspectral sensor with a medium resolution photo camera sensitive to all colours (panchromatic). This way the satellite is able to distinguish not only the geometric features of the observed objects, but also the chemical-physical composition.
