The SLIM-6 imager is a dual bank linear push broom imager utilising the orbital motion of the DMC platform to capture radiation reflected from the Earth's surface within a 600 km swath.
The spectral filter of each channel is protected by a fused silica radiation absorption window, which is positioned on the space facing side of the filter. The spectral filters are located in front of the camera lens. Each of the 6 SLIM-6 imager channels has a linear CCD array at its focal plane.

We are happy to inform you that a new online catalogue for RapidEye L3A products has been opened by Planet. The Planet Explorer replaces the old EyeFind catalogue, providing the ability to search and browse recent and past geospatial data by setting the time and area of interest. Requests for data older than 2012 and new tasking are satisfied directly by the Planet order desk (not via the catalogue).
