CEOS Instrument: Multispectral imaging system




Instrument:MSS
Agencies: ROSKOSMOS [Primary]
 ROSHYDROMET
Missions: BelKA
 Kanopus-V N1
 Kanopus-V N2
Status:Prototype
Type:High resolution optical imager
Description:Multispectral images of land & sea surfaces and ice cover
Spatial Resolution: 12 m
Swath Width: 20 km
Wavebands: 0.5 - 0.6 ?m; 0.6 - 0.7 ?m; 0.7 - 0.8 ?m; 0.8 - 0.9 ?m
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.
