High-Resolution Stereoscopic instrument
|Within Vocab||SeaVoX Device Catalogue|
|Preferred Label||High-Resolution Stereoscopic instrument|
|Definition||An optical imager designed for high-resolution land observation, in particular fire fractional cover, as well as glacier, sea-ice, snow and cloud cover. The instrument carries out along-track stereoscopic measurements using two telescopes with a 20 degree fore and aft view respectively. Stereo images are thus acquired in pairs and within a 90 second interval, covering an area 120 km wide (swath), by up to 600 km long. The instrument has a panchromatic single-channel detector in the visible (VIS) spectrum within the (0.51 - 0.73) um range. The signal-to-noise ratio is 120 at 50% albedo, and the resolution at sub-satellite point is 10 m (cross-track), and 5 m (along-track). Flown on SPOT-5. http://www.wmo-sat.info/oscar/instruments/view/193|
