CEOS Instrument: Multi-Spectral Instrument (Sentinel-2)




Instrument:MSI (Sentinel-2)
Agencies: ESA [Primary]
 EC
Missions: Sentinel-2 A
 Sentinel-2 B
 Sentinel-2 C
Status:Being developed
Type:High resolution optical imager
Description:Optical high spatial resolution imagery over land and coastal areas for GMES operational services.
Spatial Resolution: 10m for 4 bands in VNIR, 60 m for 3 dedicated atmospheric correction bands, 20 m for remaining bands
Swath Width: 290 km
Wavebands: 13 bands in the VNIR-SWIR
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.
