CEOS Instrument: Surrey Linear Imager - 6 channel - 22m resolution




Instrument:SLIM-6-22
Agency: UKSA
Mission: UK-DMC2
Status:Operational
Type:High resolution optical imager
Description:Visible and NIR imagery in support of disaster management - part of the Disaster Management constellation
Spatial Resolution: 22 m
Swath Width: Two imaging banks each with a 330km swath. The two swaths overlap by 11km, providing a total swath up to 638km
Wavebands: VIS: 0.63-0.69 ?m, 0.52-0.61 ?m; NIR: 0.77-0.90 ?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.
