IRMSS - Infrared Multispectral Scanner (CBERS 2) ImageryEntry ID: INPE_CBERS2_IRM
Abstract: The CBERS-2 satellite is designed for global coverage and include cameras that make optical observations and a Data Collection System transponder to gather data on the environment. They are unique systems due to the use of on board cameras which combine features that are specially designed to resolve the broad range of space and time scales involved in our ecosystem.
The IRMSS operates in 4 spectral bands, thus extending the CBERS spectral coverage up to the thermal infrared range. It images a 120 km swath with the resolution of 80m (160m in the thermal channel). In 26 days one obtains a complete Earth coverage that can be correlated with the images of the CCD camera.

Access Constraints All images are fully cost free when requested (via Internet). These images are (by default) sent via FTP to the users for downloading. It can rather be recorded on a CD media and mailed to the user, what implies costs (media plus mailing) driving the user to register at the Users Assistance Service (ATUS) for tax payment and shipment procedures.
