Abstract

A complex of wide-swath multispectral equipment CWSME installed on the “Resource-P” spacecraft is discussed in the paper. The complex contains a high resolution camera, a medium resolution camera and a control unit. Each of the two cameras has 6 spectral channels – one panchromatic and five multispectral ones in the visible light and near infrared band. The use of a speed lens and a single linear CCD light sensor with a great line length is the distinguishing feature of the complex. The use of a single light sensor makes possible seamless background and ensures high accuracy. The CWSME can be used for a wide range of purposes: creation and revision of topographic maps; monitoring of agricultural and forest lands; identifying bodies of forest wildfire; monitoring flood hazard areas etc. Examples of CWSME shots and prospects of equipment modernization are presented in the paper.
