  3. 3. Page 2 of 18 Institute Of Geology, University of the Punjab Session: 2013-2015 Brief Intro to ADS40 Air-borne Digital Sensors are high-tech push-broom sensors with in-track stereo imaging satellites. Due to its radio-metrically stable construction the ADS40 sensor is capable of making images for cartography as well as remote sensing applications. While satellite push-broom sensors provides resolutions ranges from 60-30 cm for mapping purposes, the ADS40 has resolution range from 05-01 cm.  ADS40 is designed to incorporate the benefits of both aerial camera and satellite push- broom sensors.  One of the reason is that, their data is on time, location, image type and resolution. And never on fixed orbit like space-borne satellite systems.  The other benefit is that they are free-of clouds.  Data can be collected in near temporal windows, which is not possible with satellites. Brief Intro to ALOS The Japanese Earth observation satellite ALOS (Advanced Land Observing Satellite) has been successfully launched on January 24, 2006. On October 24, nine months after orbital testing, the satellite started to operate at full throttle. The Advanced Land Observing Satellite "DAICHI" (ALOS) has been developed to contribute to the fields of mapping, precise regional land coverage observation, disaster monitoring, and resource surveying. It enhances land observation technologies acquired through the development and operation of its predecessors, the Japanese Earth Resource Satellite-1 (JERS-1, or Fuyo) and the Advanced Earth Observing Satellite (ADEOS, or Midori).

The data from these instruments is useful for scientific studies of the land surface, atmosphere, clouds, oceans, and the cryo-sphere. The first ATSR instrument, ATSR-1, was launched on board the European Space Agency's (ESA), European Remote Sensing Satellite (ERS-1) in July 1991, as part of their Earth Observation Program. The ATSRs are designed to meet the AATSR Scientific Requirements. TSR consists of two instruments:  An Infra-Red Radiometer (IRR) and  A Microwave Sounder (MWS). Serial No. Channels Ranges (µm) 01.

Status Non-operational The AVHRR (Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer) is a radiation-detection imager that can be used for remotely determining cloud cover and the surface temperature. This scanning radiometer uses 6 detectors that collect different bands of radiation wavelengths. The first AVHRR was a 4-channel radiometer, first carried on TIROS-N (launched October 1978). This was subsequently improved to a 5-channel instrument (AVHRR/2) that was initially carried on NOAA-7 (launched June 1981). The latest instrument version is AVHRR/3, with 6 channels, first carried on NOAA-15 launched in May 1998. AVHRR data are acquired in three formats:  High Resolution Picture Transmission (HRPT)  Local Area Coverage (LAC)  Global Area Coverage (GAC) HRPT: Data are full resolution image data transmitted to a ground station as they are collected. The average instantaneous field-of-view of 1.4 milli-radians yields a HRPT ground resolution of approximately 1.1 km at the satellite nadir from the nominal orbit altitude of 833 km (517 mi). LAC: Are full resolution data that are recorded on an on board tape for subsequent transmission during a station overpass. The average instantaneous field-of-view of 1.4 milliradians yields a LAC ground resolution of approximately 1.1 km at the satellite nadir from the nominal orbit altitude of 833 km (517 mi). GAC: Data are derived from a sample averaging of the full resolution AVHRR data. Four out of every five samples along the scan line are used to compute one average value and the data from only every third scan line are processed, yielding 1.1 km by 4 km resolution at the sub- point.

  7. 7. Page 6 of 18 Institute Of Geology, University of the Punjab Session: 2013-2015 Since the mid-1960's, when the Department of Defense (DOD) initiated the Defense Meteorological Satellite Program (DMSP), low, earth-orbiting satellites have provided the military with important environmental information. The DMSP satellites "see" such environmental features as clouds, bodies of water, snow, fire, and pollution in the visual and infrared spectral. The National Polar-orbiting Observing Satellite System (NPOESS) was a joint program of the Department of Defense, Department of Commerce and NASA to replace less sophisticated weather satellites that are expected to fail over the next several years. It would help develop 3- 7 day weather forecasts for civilian and military purposes, including weather like hurricanes, tornadoes, etc. Unfortunately, the program ended up billions over budget, and 6 or more years late. Brief Intro to Envi-Sat Envi-sat was ESA's successor to ERS. Envi-sat was launched in 2002 with 10 instruments aboard and at eight tons is the largest civilian Earth observation mission. More advanced imaging radar, radar altimeter and temperature-measuring radiometer instruments extend ERS data sets. This was supplemented by new instruments including a medium-resolution spectrometer sensitive to both land features and ocean color. Envi-sat also carried two atmospheric sensors monitoring trace gases. The Envi-sat mission ended on 08 April 2012, following the unexpected loss of contact with the satellite.

All these parameters are designed at the beginning of the mission definition depending on the application the satellite mission is targeting. Terra is a multi-national, multi-disciplinary mission involving partnerships with the aerospace agencies of Canada and Japan. Managed by NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, the mission also receives key contributions from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory and Langley Research Center.

The first two IRS spacecraft, IRS-1A (March' 1988) and IRS-1B (August, 1991) were launched by Russian Vostok boosters from the Baikonur Cosmodrome. IRS-1A failed in 1992, while IRS- 1B continued to operate through 1999. From their 22-day repeating orbits of 905 km mean altitude and 99 degrees inclination, the two identical IRS spacecraft hosted a trio of Linear Imaging Self-Scanning (LISS) remote sensing COD instruments working in four spectral bands: 0.45-0.52 µm 0.52-0.59 µm, 0.62-0.68 µm, and 0.77-0.86 µm.
