CEOS Instrument: Infrared Camera

Instrument:IR (HJ-1B)
Agency: CAST
Mission: HJ-1B
Status:No longer operational
Type:Multi-purpose imaging Vis/IR radiometer
Description:Infrared measurements for environment and natural disaster monitoring
Spatial Resolution: 300 m (10.5 - 12.5 ?m), 150 m (the other bands)
Swath Width: 720 km
Wavebands: 0.75 - 1.10 ?m, 1.55 - 1.75 ?m, 3.50 - 3.90 ?m, 10.5 - 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.
