27 January 1997 PRISM: hyperspectral spaceborne imager for land processes research
Author Affiliations +
For the post 2000 time frame, the ESA has defined candidate missions for Earth Observation. In the class of the Earth Explorer missions, dedicated to research and demonstration missions, the Land-Surface Processes and Interactions Missions involves a dedicated satellite carrying a single optical payload named PRISM. PRISM is a push broom multispectral imager providing high spatial resolution images in the whole optical spectral domain. It provides an access on any site on Earth within at maximum 3 days. In addition, the mission will be able to provide multi- directional observations by combining instrument depointing capabilities and satellite maneuvering. The instrument radiometric performance reach a high level of accuracy by involving on-board calibration capabilities. This paper presents the results of one of the two pre-feasibility studies awarded by ESA, led by AEROSPATIALE and concerning the PRISM payload.
