[MTT06-P02] Development of MicroDragon for ocean color observation
Vietnam has a long coastal line with about 7% households in the fishery. Seafood plays an important role in developing Vietnam economics. However, with increasing exploitation, natural aquatic resources are decreasing quickly. Development of aquaculture is necessary for a sustainable economics. To do this, Vietnam needs an effective system which is an integration of remote sensing and sea water sampling to monitor coastal water quality. Therefore, Mission of MicroDragon is ocean color observation to provide data to researchers in fishery field and scientists in oceanography for assessing water quality and locating living resources. We will use three imagers being composed of Space-borne multispectral Imager, Infra-Red Imager, and Triple Polarization Imager onboard and Fluoro probes in the sea for the missions.
