CEOS Instrument: Second-generation Global Imager

Agency: JAXA
Missions: GCOM-C1
Type:Medium-resolution spectro-radiometer
Description:Medium resolution multi-spectral imaging of land, ocean and atmosphere
Spatial Resolution: 250 m, 500 m, 1000 m
Swath Width: 1150 km (VNR), 1400 km (IRS)
Wavebands: VIS - NIR: 0.38 - 0.865 ?m, SW: 1.05 - 2.21 ?m; TIR: 10.8 - 12.0 ?m
Technology: Medium-resolution spectro-radiometer
Description: Used when the number of channels is high and they are too close to be separated by dichroics and filters. The instrument spreads the radiation beam by means of a spectrometer, but thereafter only a limited number of channels is selected, that generally is re-programmable. Channels bandwidths 1-3 %, spatial resolution typically 0.5-5 km. Applicable in LEO and GEO.
