Paper Abstract

VEGETATION is one payload on the earth-observation satellite SPOT 4, launch scheduled in 1992. It is developped, assembled and tested by AEROSPATIALE, under CNES contract. Its objectives are : - primarily : an operational world-scale survey of the evolution of VEGETATION (forecasting of agricultural yields and environmental studies); - secondarily : the observation of oceanic areas. Field of view is ± 50.5°C (2 000 km on ground), with observation frequency of less than 2 days at equator. The system, equipped with its own telemetry channels and on-board computer , will send coded data according 2 types of observation : . world wide observation : recording, then time-tagged transmission, with a nadir resolution of 1.165 km x 1.165 km or (in an exclusive sense) 4.66 km x 4.66 km (agglomeration of 16 pixels), . regional observation real-time transmission, with a nadir resolution of 1.165 km.
