Objectives and Applications HICO is an INP (Innovative Naval Prototype) instrument sponsored by the Office of Naval Research (ONR), Washington, D. C. In 2005, ONR and the Naval Research laboratory (NRL) began a program to design, build, and operate the first spaceborne hyperspectral imagers optimized for the coastal ocean. This transition to space platforms is based on more than a decade of airborne hyperspectral imaging experience at NRL and other laboratories, which provides the basis for imager performance requirements and algorithms for atmospheric removal and littoral product retrievals.
