1 August 1991 Imager of METEOSAT second generation
Author Affiliations +
The selected optical payload for the future Meteosat second generation satellites (MSG) is a spinning enhanced vis-IR imager (SEVIRI). This instrument will provide full earth disk images every 15 minutes with 3 km spatial resolution (sampling distance) in 11 visible and IR spectral channels, and 1 km in a dedicated high resolution visible channel. The foreseen set of spectral channels includes the visible and IR atmospheric windows, two water vapor channels, and three narrow IR bands at 4.5, 13 and 14 microns also called pseudo-sounding or instability channels. This paper presents an overall description of the instrument and recalls the technical trade-offs which have lead to select this approach through several pre-phase A studies.
