Description
The Thermal Infrared Multispectral Scanner (TIMS) sensor is a
line scanning device originally designed for geologic
applications. Flown aboard NASA C-130B, NASA ER-2, and NASA
Learjet aircraft, the TIMS sensor has a nominal Instantaneous
Field of View of 2.5 milliradians with a ground resolution of 25
feet (7.6 meters) at 10,000 feet. The sensor has a selectable
scan rate (7.3, 8.7, 12, or 25 scans per second) with 698 pixels
per scan line. Swath width is 2.6 nautical miles (4.8
kilometers) at 10,000 feet while the scanner's Field of View is
76.56 degrees
