It is uniquely advantaged to monitor and survey the characteristics of seas from the space. The result of the observation of sea surface by using the aircraft-borne and the satellite-borne remote sensors proves that it is feasible to obtain the data of the sea surface temperature and the color by means of remote sensing technology. We can obtain the information about the deposition suspension, the plankton and the chlorophyll, etc. of the sea by the remote sensing application of sea. Then, through the inversion, we can get the chlorophyll density, the sea primarily productive forces and all the essential factors of the water color. This article introduces a new remote sensor of sea environment monitor developed by Shanghai Institute of Technical Physics Academy of Science Marine Aircraft-borne Multi-spectral Scanner (MAMS). We present its main technical specification, performance and use in the article as well.
Pushbroom Hyperspectral Imaging technology is a new method to acquire the imaging spectrum data. Based on the area CCD technology, pushbroom imager can provide the higher SNR and more bands. Since 1995, Shanghai Institute of Technical Physics was developing the Pushbroom Hyperspectral Imager. In the paper, two generation of pushbroom hyperspectral imager (PHI) and the principle of instrument are introduced. The method and result of spectral calibration and radiation calibration are written in detail. PHI had been used in remote sensing of environment monitoring, geology study, oil and gas prospecting, vegetation, ocean observation, city layout, fine agriculture, forest fireproofing at home and abroad.
