CEOS Instrument: Visible and Thermal Infrared Radiometer

Agency: JAXA
Missions: MOS-1B
Status:No longer operational
Type:Multi-purpose imaging Vis/IR radiometer
Description:Medium resolution visible and thermal infrared imaging of ocean and atmosphere
Spatial Resolution: VIS: 900m, TIR: 2700m
Swath Width: 1500km
Wavebands: VIS: 0.5-0.7?m, TIR: 6.0-7.0?m, 10.5-11.5?m, 11.5-12.5?m
Technology: Multi-purpose imaging Vis/IR radiometer
Description: Instrument designed to address more objectives by appropriate blending of the characteristics of spectral coverage and resolution, spatial resolution, radiometric accuracy, etc.. Spectral coverage in bands of Vis, NIR, SWIR, MWIR and TIR (0.4-15 Ám). Number of channels from a few to a few tens, separated by dichroics and filters. Channel bandwidths around 10 %. Spatial resolution typically 30m-3 km. Applicable in LEO and GEO.
