CEOS Instrument: Compact High Resolution Imaging Spectrometer

Agencies: ESA [Primary]
Mission: PROBA
Type:High resolution optical imager
Description:Supports a range of land, ocean and atmospheric applications, including agricultural science, forestry, environmental science, atmospheric science and oceanography
Spatial Resolution: 36 m or 18 m depending on wavebands selected.
Swath Width: 14 km
Wavebands: VIS - NIR: 400 - 1050 nm (63 spectral bands at a spatial resolution of 36 m; or 18 bands at full spatial resolution (18 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.
