Abstract:
The Panchromatic Remote-sensing Instrument for Stereo Mapping (PRISM) is a panchromatic radiometer with 2.5m spatial resolution at nadir. Its extracted data will provide a highly accurate digital surface model (DSM). PRISM has three independent optical systems for viewing nadir, forward and backward producing a stereoscopic image along the satellite's track. Each telescope consists of three mirrors and several CCD detectors for push-broom scanning. The nadir-viewing telescope covers a width of 70km; forward and backward telescopes cover 35km each. The telescopes are installed on the sides of the optical bench with precise temperature control. Forward and backward telescopes are inclined +24 and -24 degrees from nadir to realize a base-to-height ratio of 1.0. PRISM's wide field of view (FOV) provides three fully overlapped stereo (triplet) images of a 35km width without mechanical scanning or yaw steering of the satellite. Without this wide FOV, forward, nadir, and backward images would not overlap each other due to the Earth's rotation.--------------------------------PRISM Characteristics --------------------------------Number of Bands 1 (Panchromatic) Wavelength 0.52 to 0.77 micrometers Number of Optics 3 (Nadir; Forward; Backward) Base-to-Height ratio 1.0 (between Forward and Backward view) Spatial Resolution 2.5m (at Nadir) Swath Width 70km (Nadir only) / 35km (Triplet mode) S/N >70 MTF >0.2 Number of Detectors 28000 / band (Swath Width 70km)14000 / band (Swath Width 35km) Pointing Angle -1.5 to +1.5 degrees(Triplet Mode, Cross-track direction) Bit Length 8 bits Observation Modes: Mode 1 Triplet observation mode using Forward, Nadir, and Backwardviews (Swath width is 35km)Mode 2 Nadir (70km) + Backward (35km) Mode 3 Nadir (70km) Mode 4 Nadir (35km) + Forward (35km) Mode 5 Nadir (35km) + Backward (35km) Mode 6 Forward (35km) + Backward (35km) Mode 7 Nadir (35km) Mode 8 Forward (35km) Mode 9 Backward (35km)
