[ Get Data ]

Abstract: CBERS-2 CCD - High Resolution CCD Camera.

The CCD camera provides images of a 113 km wide strip with 20m spatial resolution. Since this camera has a sideways pointing capability of ± 32 degrees, it is capable of taking stereoscopic images of a certain region.

The CCD camera operates in 5 spectral bands that include a panchromatic one from 0.51 to 0.73 µm. A complete coverage cycle of the CCD camera takes 26 days.
