Minimize SLIM-6 imager
Instrument image
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.
