CEOS Instrument: Multispectral Imager

Instrument:MSI (BJ-1)
Agencies: NRSCC [Primary]
Mission: BJ-1
Status:No longer operational
Type:High resolution optical imager
Description:To provide multispectral analysis of hydrological, oceanographic, land use and meteorological parameters.
Spatial Resolution: 32 m
Swath Width: 600 km
Wavebands: Green 520 - 600 nm; Red 630 - 690 nm; NIR 760 - 900 nm
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.
