CEOS Instrument: Multi-Angle Polarisation Imager




Instrument:MAPI
Agency: ISRO
Mission: ISTAG
Status:No longer considered
Type:Multi-channel/direction/polarisation radiometer
Description:Measurement of column integrated aerosol spectral optical depth
Spatial Resolution: N/A
Swath Width: N/A
Wavebands: N/A
Technology: Multi-channel/direction/polarisation radiometer
Description: Imaging Vis/IR radiometer that addresses parameters observable by exploiting different viewing conditions (e.g., to convert radiances into irradiances), different polarisations (to reconstruct the electric field, i.e. the Stokes vector) and more channels (to collect more spectral signatures). A variety of configurations are possible. Multi-polarisation and multi-directionality are appropriate for short wavelengths. Channels bandwidths 2-5 %, spatial resolution typically 0.5-5 km. Applicable only in LEO.
