CEOS Instrument: High Resolution Camera




Instrument:HRC
Agencies: CAST [Primary]
 INPE
Mission: CBERS-2B
Status:No longer operational
Type:High resolution optical imager
Description:Earth resources, environmental monitoring, land use
Spatial Resolution: 2.5 m
Swath Width: 27 km
Wavebands: VIS: 0.50 - 0.80 ?m
Technology: High resolution optical imager
Description: Imaging Vis/IR radiometer whose characteristics are stressed towards spatial resolution (typically <30 m). Spectral coverage in bands of Vis and NIR (0.4-1.3 Ám). Number of channels can be small (extreme: one, i.e. panchromatic) or very large (hyperspectral) separated in-field (array detectors) or by a spectrometer, or a combination of both. Channel bandwidths from 0.5 Ám (PAN) to 5 nm (hyperspectral). Applicable only in LEO.
