ISSAC Captures First Images

Photonics Spectra
Sep 2011
A multispectral imager ISSAC (International Space Station Agricultural Camera) has successfully captured its first high-resolution image from space, showing the western coastal region of Florida on June 10, 2011, from 250 miles above the Earth. The imaging sensor assembly of ISSAC is based on multispectral camera technology made by FluxData Inc. of Rochester, N.Y. The system’s green, red and near-IR spectral response bands were selected to emulate those of the Landsat 7 satellite and to provide many of the same benefits for vegetation and moisture discrimination, monitoring and identification.
