SPOT High Resolution Visible Data Received at NASDA in Japan
Entry ID: SPOT-HRV-NASDA


Summary
Abstract: Centre National de Etudes Spatiales, CNES, launched the first French earth
observing satellite SPOT-1 as an operational, commercial satellite with two
High Resolution Visible Imaging Instruments which are able to operate
identically at the same time. The HRV can take oblique views using a position
selection mirror with maximum viewing angle 27 degrees off the satellite track.

In the case of nadir viewing, the swath width of each HRV is 60 kilometers.
The Observing mode of HRVs is both panchromatic and multispectral. The
spectral range and resolution is as follows:

spectral mode band spectral range resolution
=====================================================================
multispectral XS1 0.50 - 0.59 micrometers 20 meters
XS2 0.61 - 0.68 micrometers 20 meters
XS3 0.79 - 0.89 micrometers 20 meters
panchromatic PAN 0.51 - 0.73 micrometers 10 meters

The Earth Observing Center, NASDA, archives all data received. It then
processes photographic and/or digital products on user demand. Request for
reception is accepted 4 weeks before the observation.
