CEOS Instrument: BILSAT VNIR Panchromatic camera

Instrument:BILSAT VNIR Panchromatic
Mission: BILSAT
Status:No longer operational
Type:High resolution optical imager
Description:High resolution images for monitoring of land surface and coastal processes and for agricultural, geological and hydrological applications
Spatial Resolution: 12.6 m
Swath Width: 55 km
Wavebands: 0.45 - 0.90 ?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.
