CEOS Instrument: Meteorological Imager

Agencies: KARI [Primary]
Mission: COMS
Type:Multi-purpose imaging Vis/IR radiometer
Description:Continuous monitoring capability for the near-realtime generation of high-resolution meteorological products and long-term change analysis of sea surface temperature and cloud coverage.
Spatial Resolution: VIS: 1 km, IR: 4 km
Swath Width: Full Earth disk
Wavebands: 1: VIS, 0.55 - 0.80 ?m; 2: SWIR: 3.50 - 4.00 ?m; 3: WV (Waver Vapor): 6.50 - 7.00 ?m; 4: TIR1 (Thermal Infrared 1): 10.3 - 11.3 ?m, 5: TIR2 (Thermal Infrared 2): 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.
