High Resolution Visible Imaging Instrument (HRV)

Status: Not defined
Publication State:


The HRV instrument is a multispectral radiometer designed for SPOT (Earth observing satellites) spacecraft. The HRV instrument provides high-resolution imaging in the visible and near-infrared portions of the electromagnetic spectrum. Operating independently of each other, the two HRVs acquire imagery in either multispectral (XS) and/or panchromatic (P) modes at any viewing angle within plus or minus 27 degrees. This off-nadir viewing enables the acquisition of stereoscopic imagery. To make sure the satellite covers every point on the earth's surface, the HRV imaging instruments offer a field of view that is wider than the greatest distance between two adjacent tracks.
