    In this paper we analyse mission results from Finnish Aalto-1 CubeSat, concentrating on in-orbit demonstration of miniature spectral imager for Earth Observation. The satellite was launched to space on June 23th 2017, by Indian PSLV rocket. The satellite was inserted successfully to a Sun-synchronous orbit at altitude of 505 km and it has been in operation since then.
