Abstract
This paper describes a Coastal Water Camera System (CWCS) that provides the wide field of view, high spatial resolution and high SNR imaging spectroradiometry at ultraviolet (UV) through near infrared (NIR) wavelengths needed to meet challenging requirements for coastal water measurements from polar sun synchronous orbit (SSO). CWCS uses a flexible, modular architecture that can be scaled to fit within a wide range of mission resource constraints. CWCS includes 12 spectral bands selected from across a 375-960 nm spectral range. CWCS delivers the high spatial resolution (~50 m), high SNR (>775 in ~100 m pixel) UV-NIR measurements across a wide (~540 km) swath needed for effective coastal water imaging.
