The `modular optoelectronic multispectral/stereo scanner' (MOMS-02) is a second generation pushbroom scanner, flown during the D2 mission aboard Space Shuttle flight STS-55. Besides a three line along-track stereo device, the sensor is equipped with multispectral modules that provide data in 4 wavebands covering the visible and near-infrared range. The mission took place during April/May 1993 and provided data of approximately 8 Mio. km2. Data have been acquired in different modes at a mean altitude of 296 km that results in a mean GIFOV of 4.5 m X 4.5 m for the nadir looking panchromatic module and 13.5 m X 13.5 m for the multispectral and tilted panchromatic modules. Centering and widths of all bands for the spectral and panchromatic modules have been newly designed. The narrower and distinct positioned bandpasses allow a more detailed recording of vegetational targets and improve discrimination of various rock/soil types independently of the very high spatial resolution. The results of investigated MOMS-02 data with regard to technical parameters and distinct applications are discussed within this paper.
