Paper Abstract

A small remote sensing payload (3 Kg.) is being flown on a low altitude (500 KM) Rohini Satellite to be launched by India in middle of 1982. The sensor comprises of two solid-state cameras having resolution of 1Km with 250Km swath, using photodiode array in Red and IR bands. The scan motion is provided by the spin of the satellite. The sensor utilises smart technique for reduction of data content to be transmitted to ground by incorporating onboard feature classification algorithms.
