CEOS Instrument: Linear Imaging Self Scanner - III (IRS)




Instrument:LISS-III (IRS)
Agency: ISRO
Missions: IRS-1C
 IRS-1D
Status:No longer operational
Type:High resolution optical imager
Description:Data used for vegetation type assessment, resource assessment, crop stress detection, crop production forecasting, forestry, land use and land cover change
Spatial Resolution: Bands 2, 3 & 4: 23.5 m, Band 5: 70.5 m
Swath Width: 141 km
Wavebands: VIS: Band 2: 0.52 - 0.59 ?m, Band 3: 0.62 - 0.68 ?m, NIR: Band 4: 0.77 - 0.86 ?m, SWIR: Band 5: 1.55 - 1.75 ?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.
