The moderate resolution imaging spectroradiometer is a space-based imaging spectroradiometer designed to observe small changes in Earth system processes over long periods of time. The first of several MODIS instruments is scheduled to fly on the Earth Observation System (EOS)-AM spacecraft in 1998. The engineering model for the MODIS is well into build and will be in system test later this year. This paper provides an overview of the MODIS instrument and highlights many of the technical achievements during the engineering model development. Results of subsystem testing of critical assemblies is presented indicating a high probability of success in critical performance areas at the system level.
