Paper Abstract

Communication Ocean Meteorological Satellite (COMS) for the hybrid mission of meteorological observation, ocean monitoring, and telecommunication service is planned to be launched onto Geostationary Earth Orbit in 2008. The meteorological payload of COMS is an imager which will monitor meteorological phenomenon around the Korean peninsular intensively and of Asian-side full Earth disk periodically. The meteorological imager (MI) of COMS has 5 spectral channels, 1 visible channel with the resolution of 1 km at nadir and 4 infrared channels with the resolution of 4 km at nadir. The characteristics of the COMS MI are introduced in the view points of user requirements, hardware features, and operation characteristics.
