Title: ALOS Data (JAXA/EOC)
Description:
Abstract:
ALOS is a comprehensive earth observing satellite system which includes optical sensors for high resolution observation, wide area observation, and fine accuracy DEM production, and SAR with adjustable off-nadir observation function. Objectives of the ALOS system development and operation are (1) Development and update of maps for Japan and other countries - including those in the Asia-Pacific region (Cartography), (2) Regional observation for sustainable development (Regional Observation), (3) Timely disaster monitoring around the world (Disaster Monitoring), and (4) Survey of natural resources (Resource Survey). ALOS has three sensors for Earth observations, Panchromatic Remote-Sensing Instrument for Stereo Mapping (PRISM), Advanced Visible and Near Infrared Radiometer type 2 (AVNIR-2), and Phased Array type L-band Synthetic Aperture Radar (PALSAR). ----------------------------------------------- ALOS ----------------------------------------------- Launch Vehicle H-IIA Launch Date January 24, 2006 Launch Site Tanegashima Space Center, Kagoshima Weight Approx. 4,000 kg Designed Life Span 3-5 years Orbit Sun-Synchronous Subrecurrent Local Time at Desending Node 10:30 AM ± 15min.
