CEOS Instrument: Ocean Scanning Multispectral Imager

Agency: KARI
Mission: KOMPSAT-1
Status:No longer operational
Type:Medium-resolution spectro-radiometer
Description:Ocean color measurements for biological oceanography
Spatial Resolution: 1 km
Swath Width: 800 km
Wavebands: VIS: 0.412 ?m, 0.443 ?m, 0.490 ?m, 0.555 ?m; NIR: 0.765 ?m, 0.865 ?m
Technology: Medium-resolution spectro-radiometer
Description: Used when the number of channels is high and they are too close to be separated by dichroics and filters. The instrument spreads the radiation beam by means of a spectrometer, but thereafter only a limited number of channels is selected, that generally is re-programmable. Channels bandwidths 1-3 %, spatial resolution typically 0.5-5 km. Applicable in LEO and GEO.
