CEOS Instrument: High Resolution Panchromatic Camera

Agency: CONAE
Mission: SAC-C
Type:High resolution optical imager
Description:High resolution earth imagery to complement MMRS on the same mission
Spatial Resolution: 35 m
Swath Width: 90 km
Wavebands: VIS - NIR: 400-900 nm
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.
