Paper Abstract

Three experimental small satellites were developed and flown by ISRO for imaging purposes. This paper gives the details of the payloads of these satellites. The first satellite was ROHINI-D1 which carried a single-band panchromatic band camera. The ROHINI-D2 satellite had a two-band camera using linear detector arrays and had a capability to identify features using the ratio of signals in two spectral bands. The SROSS-2 satellite carried a stereo imaging camera with capabilities of getting triple images along the ground track.
