CEOS Instrument: Venus Superspectral Camera




Instrument:VSC
Agencies: CNES [Primary]
 ISA
Mission: VENUS
Status:Being developed
Type:High resolution optical imager
Description:High resolution superspectral images (12 spectral bands) for vegetation and landcover applications
Spatial Resolution: 5.3 m spatial resolution with 27 km swath
Swath Width: 27 km
Wavebands: 420 nm centre wavelength (width: 40 nm); 443 nm (40); 490 nm (40); 555 nm (40); 620 nm (40); 620 nm (40); 667 nm (30); 702 nm (24); 742 nm (16); 782 nm (16); 865 nm (40); 910 nm (20)
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.
