Description
The Panchromatic Remote-sensing Instrument for Stereo Mapping (PRISM)
is a panchromatic radiometer with 2.5-meter spatial resolution. Its
data will be used for extracting highly accurate digital elevation
model (DEM).

The PRISM has three independent optical systems for nadir, forward and
backward looking to achieve along-track stereoscopy. Each telescope
consists of three mirrors and several CCD detectors for pushbroom
