CEOS Instrument: Operational Land Imager

Agencies: NASA [Primary]
Mission: LDCM
Status:Being developed
Type:High resolution optical imager
Description:Measures surface radiance and emittance, land cover state and change (eg vegetation type). Used as multi-purpose imagery for land applications
Spatial Resolution: Pan: 15 m, VIS - SWIR: 30 m
Swath Width: 185 km
Wavebands: VIS - SWIR: 9 bands: 0.43 - 2.3 ?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.
