CEOS Instrument: Multi Spectral Imager




Instrument:MSI
Agency: DLR
Mission: RapidEye
Status:Operational
Type:High resolution optical imager
Description:High resolution images with short observing cycle for commercial and scientific applications
Spatial Resolution: 6.5 m
Swath Width: 78 km
Wavebands: 4 VIS + 1 NIR band: 440 - 510 nm, 520 - 590 nm, 630 - 685 nm, 690 - 730 nm, 760 - 850 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.
