Sensor Specifications: ARIES



The Australian Resource Information and Environmental Satellite (ARIES-1) was originally planned for launch in 2000. The planned imaging sensors are a panchromatic sensor with 10-m spatial resolution and a 64-channel spectrometer with VNIR and SWIR channels. This satellite will have a polar, circular, sun-synchronous 500-km orbital height. The swath width for these sensors is 15 km and the revisit cycle is 7 days, due to the off-nadir pointing ability.
