CEOS Instrument: Advanced Visible and Near Infrared Radiometor




Instrument:AVNIR
Agency: JAXA
Mission: ADEOS
Status:No longer operational
Type:High resolution optical imager
Description:High resolution multi-spectral imager for land applications which include environmental monitoring, agriculture and forestry, disaster monitoring
Spatial Resolution: 16 m (multi), 8 m (pan)
Swath Width: 80km
Wavebands: "VIS (~0.40 ?m - ~0.75 ?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.
