CEOS Instrument: Panchromatic Remote-sensing Instrument for Stereo Mapping

Agency: JAXA
Mission: ALOS
Status:No longer operational
Type:High resolution optical imager
Description:High resolution panchromatic stereo imager for land applications which include cartography, digital terrain models, civil planning, agriculture and forestry
Spatial Resolution: 2.5 m
Swath Width: 35 km (triplet stereo observations), 70 km (nadir observations+35 km backward)
Wavebands: VIS - NIR: 0.52 - 0.77 ?m (panchromatic)
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.
