Paper Abstract

The MERIS instrument is a medium resolution spectro-imager developed by AEROSPATIALE for the first ESA polar platform, ENVISAT 1. This instrument is mainly devoted to oceans observation between 400 and 1050 nm with a large field of view corresponding on ground to 1100 km with a central 260 meters resolution. Up to 15 bands can be selected from ground, with a spectral bandwidth from 1 25 to 30 nm, and the overall field of view is achieved by five identical adjacent modules. CERCO is in charge of these Optical Sub-Assemblies. The paper presents the concept of an elementary module and the works done to guarantee the camera optics compatibility with environmental constraints. It also gives the status of breadboarding activities concerning critical items such as concave grating, second order blocking filter and optical parts coatings.
