Status:Operational
Type:Multi-purpose imaging Vis/IR radiometer
Description:Data of use for crop forecast and monitoring, vegetation monitoring, and biosphere/ geosphere interaction studies
Spatial Resolution: 1.15 km at nadir - minimal variation for off-nadir viewing
Swath Width: 2200 km
Wavebands: Operational mode: VIS: 0.61 - 0.68 ?m, NIR: 0.78 - 0.89 ?m, SWIR: 1.58 - 1.75 ?m, Experimental mode: VIS: 0.43 - 0.47 ?m
Technology: Multi-purpose imaging Vis/IR radiometer
Description: Instrument designed to address more objectives by appropriate blending of the characteristics of spectral coverage and resolution, spatial resolution, radiometric accuracy, etc.. Spectral coverage in bands of Vis, NIR, SWIR, MWIR and TIR (0.4-15 Ám). Number of channels from a few to a few tens, separated by dichroics and filters. Channel bandwidths around 10 %. Spatial resolution typically 30m-3 km. Applicable in LEO and GEO.
