CEOS Instrument: High Resolution Multi Spectral

Agency: ISRO
Missions: CARTOSAT-2C
Type:High resolution optical imager
Description:For crops and vegetation dynamics, natural resources census, disaster management and large scale mapping of themes
Spatial Resolution: 2 m / 1m
Swath Width: 10 km
Wavebands: 4 bands MX in VIS and NIR
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.
