Paper Abstract

The Planetary Coral Reef Foundation is proposing to privately fund a Coral Reef Satellite Mission to perform a global mapping survey of shallow water coral reefs and monitor their health over a period of at least 5 years. Using available technology, but restricting the goals of the Mission to the limited objectives of finding and monitoring coral reefs, it is possible to design a coherent and cost effective flight system. We describe the general design of the mission and its components, giving particular emphasis to the science payload.
