The data products supplied by DMCII are derived from images acquired by the DMC satellites. The primary payload on the DMC satellites is the SLIM-6 imager manufactured by SSTL, UK. This manual will aid users in their analysis of the data products to maximise the information they can extract from the DMC images by providing a thorough description of the data products, the imaging payload, the calibration procedure and the orthorectification process.
The critical design review was completed in June 1983. Prototype model of MOS-1 is now being manufactured. Based on the results of the review, this document was revised to facilitate the design of the ground stations for acquisition and process of MOS-1 data.
