CEOS Instrument: Panchromatic and multispectral imager

Agencies: CAST [Primary]
Missions: CBERS-3
Type:High resolution optical imager
Description:Earth resources, environmental monitoring, land use, urban studies
Spatial Resolution: 5 m panchromatic and 10 m multispectral
Swath Width: 60 km
Wavebands: 0.52 - 0.59 ?m, 0.63 - 0.69 ?m, 0.77 - 0.89 ?m, 0.51 - 0.85 ?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.
