The SeaHawk program is funded by the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation of San Francisco, and managed by John Morrison of the University of North Carolina-Wilmington (UNC-W). Cloudland Instruments is developing SeaHawk’s multispectral ocean color imager, known as HawkEye. HawkEye optics, filters, detector arrays, and electronics form a cube just 10 cm on a side to fit the SeaHawk 3U CubeSat manufactured by Clyde Space, Glasgow Scotland. This paper discusses the system engineering approach to design, develop, complete, test, integrate and launch two SeaHawk CubeSats in three years within a $1.7M budget.
