CEOS Instrument: Panchromatic sensor

Instrument:PAN (IRS-1C/1D)
Agency: ISRO
Missions: IRS-1C
Status:No longer operational
Type:High resolution optical imager
Description:High resolution stereo images for study of topography, urban areas, development of DTM, run-off models etc. Urban sprawl, forest cover/timber volume, land use change
Spatial Resolution: 5.8 m
Swath Width: 70 km at nadir
Wavebands: Panchromatic VIS: 0.5 - 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.
