|Definition||The Multispectral Scanner System (MSS) is a high resolution optical imager designed to measure Earth's surface reflectance in four optical bands in the visible and near-infrared spectrums, for use in monitoring the global land surface and vegetation cover. Earth-reflected sunlight is detected by an oscillating cross-track scan mirror, which scans six lines simultaneously in four spectral bands per mirror sweep. Two of these bands are in the visible spectrum, with the remaining two in the near-infrared spectrum. The four spectral bands have a spatial resolution of 79m. Their wavelengths are 0.5-0.6 micrometres, 0.6-0.7 micrometeres, 0.7-0.8 micrometres, and 0.8-1.1 micrometres. MSS has a swath width of 185 km and an 80 m instantaneous field of view (IFOV).
