CEOS Instrument: Advanced Visible and Near Infra-red Radiometer type 2

Agency: JAXA
Mission: ALOS
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: 10 m
Swath Width: 70 km
Wavebands: VIS: 0.42 - 0.50 ?m, 0.52 - 0.60 ?m, 0.61 - 0.69 ?m, NIR: 0.76 - 0.89 ?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.
