CEOS Instrument: TOPSAT Telescope

Instrument:TOPSAT Telescope
Agency: UKSA
Mission: TopSat
Status:No longer operational
Type:High resolution optical imager
Description:Experimental medium-resolution imaging satellite supporting a range of possible land applications.
Spatial Resolution: Multi-spectral imagery (RGB). resolution 5.6 m
Swath Width: Panchromatic imagery 17 x 17 km; Multi Spectral - Swath 12 x 18 km
Wavebands: Panchromatic imagery. Resolution 2.8 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.
