CBERS-2

CBERS-2

CBERS-2 Satellite Sensor (20m)

The CBERS-2 satellite sensor identical to CBERS-1 Program was born from a partnership between Brazil and China in the space technical scientific segment. CBERS-1 was launched successfully on October 21, 2003 from the Taiyuan Satellite Launch Center in China.

The CBERS-2 satellite sensor includes sophisticated cameras for the collection of optical and environmental data at a global scale.

Satellite imagery from CBERS-2 satellite is used for deforestation and fire control in the Amazon Region, monitoring water resources and urban growth, soil occupation, education and several other applications. One important application is the hydrological basin monitoring by the ANA and SIVAM platform networks, which provides Brazilian river and rain data.

The unique characteristics of CBERS-2 are its multi-sensor payloads with different spatial and spectral resolution capabilities and frequencies from each camera allowing for various mapping applications including:

  • Large scale mosaics
  • Vegetation indexes and land cover and change detection for monitoring purposes
  • Monitoring of agricultural harvests, canopy assessment, tree grading, deforestation, forestry, wildfires/forest fires, and infestation
  • Joint operation with other world data

CCD Camera supports the analysis of phenomena whose duration is compatible with its temporal resolution. This temporal resolution can be improved as the CCD has the capacity of side view. Its bands are located in the spectral zone of the visible and near infrared, which allow good contrast between vegetation and other type of objects.

Landsat 9 Missions
Development of the OLI-2 and TIRS-2 instruments is progressing, and both are on target for integration with the spacecraft in mid-2019. The instruments are rebuilds of those onboard Landsat 8; however, TIRS-2 has improved stray light performance through improved telescope baffling and improved position encoder for the scene select mechanism, both issues on the Landsat 8 TIRS instrument. The Landsat 9 ground system and Mission Operations Center (MOC) are progressing through their respective milestones.  Landsat 9 remains on schedule for a December 2020 launch from Vandenberg Air Force Base..

GEO Business U.K. 2018
EarthOnDrive will be presenting its latest technologies and mapping software at the GeoBusiness, U.K. on May 22-23, 2018. The GEO Business show has grown every year since its inception, and the 2018 show looks set to be the most successful show to date with more exhibition space and a brand new seminar program. The event will return to the Business Design Centre, in London, UK, May 22-23. Since its record-breaking 2017 event last year, which welcomed 2,386 geomatics and geospatial professionals from around the world (a 48 percent increase since the launch in 2014), the exhibition has expand..
