PRISM consists of three panchromatic telescopes for forward, nadir, and backwards viewing. The stereoscopic views will be used to create highly accurate digital elevation models, while the 2.5 m resolution will permit the production of orthorectified imagery.
PRISM will be used to provide land coverage and land-use classification maps for monitoring regional environments. In addition, the instrument has a cross track pointing capability useful for disaster monitoring.
