Research overview:
Up to now, the center wavelength and the bandwidth of observation are fixed in the optical remote sensing from satellites. Though this settings are not always best to observation objects. On the other hand, there are three features of the future type optical sensors in actual use in future. They are hyper spectrum (wavelength resolution is less than a few nanometers), tunable (the center wavelength is selectable arbitrarily) and polarimetry (polarized light observation function). Therefore, the usefulness and problems when such advanced optical sensors are applied to actual remote sensing are studied in advance. This study aims at contribution to the development of more superior onboard sensors. (This is the joint study with the National Aerospace Laboratory up to 2002.)
