CEOS Instrument: Hot Spot Recognition System

Agency: DLR
Mission: BIRD
Status:No longer operational
Type:High resolution optical imager
Description:Hot spot Detection (vegetation fires, volcanic activities, burning oil wells or coal seams
Spatial Resolution: 370 m
Swath Width: 190 km
Wavebands: MWIR: 3.4 - 4.2 ?m, TIR: 8.4 - 9.3 ?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.
