CEOS Instrument: NigeriaSat Remote Sensing (medium resolution)

Instrument:NigeriaSat Medium Resolution
Agency: NASRDA
Mission: NigeriaSat-1
Status:No longer operational
Type:High resolution optical imager
Description:Medium resolution images for monitoring of land surface and coastal processes and for agricultural, geological and hydrological applications
Spatial Resolution: 32 m multispectral (red, green, NIR)
Swath Width: 600 x 600 km
Wavebands: NIR: ~0.75 ?m - ~1.3 ?m,VIS: ~0.40 ?m - ~0.75 ?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.
