CEOS Instrument: High Resolution Visible

Agency: CNES
Missions: SPOT-1
Status:No longer operational
Type:High resolution optical imager
Description:2 HRV instruments provide 60 x 60 km images for a range of land and coastal applications
Spatial Resolution: 10 m (panchromatic) or 20 m
Swath Width: 117 km (i.e. 60 km + 60 km with 3 km overlap) - steerable up to ▒27 deg off-track
Wavebands: VIS: B1:0.5 - 0.59 ?m, B2:0.61 - 0.68 ?m, NIR: B3:0.79 - 0.89 ?m, Panchromatic: VIS 0.51 - 0.73 ?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.
