CEOS Instrument: Infra-red Spectrometer




Instrument:ISTOK-1
Agency: ROSKOSMOS
Mission: PRIRODA
Status:No longer operational
Type:Medium-resolution spectro-radiometer
Description:Spectral measurements of thermal emission of atmosphere and of underlying Earth surface at a variety of incident angles as well as measurements of transmission spectra of atmosphere while tracking the Sun
Spatial Resolution: N/A
Swath Width: N/A
Wavebands: N/A
Technology: Medium-resolution spectro-radiometer
Description: Used when the number of channels is high and they are too close to be separated by dichroics and filters. The instrument spreads the radiation beam by means of a spectrometer, but thereafter only a limited number of channels is selected, that generally is re-programmable. Channels bandwidths 1-3 %, spatial resolution typically 0.5-5 km. Applicable in LEO and GEO.
