CEOS Instrument: Panchromatic sensor




Instrument:PAN (Cartosat-3/3A)
Agency: ISRO
Missions: CARTOSAT-3
 CARTOSAT-3A
Status:Being developed
Type:High resolution optical imager
Description:High resolution images for study of topography, urban areas, development of DTM, run-off models etc. Urban sprawl, forest cover/timber volume, land use change
Spatial Resolution: 0.3 m
Swath Width: 15 km
Wavebands: Panchromatic VIS: 0.5 - 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.
