HRG

    

 Two HRG (High Resolution Geometric) instruments are capable of generating data at four resolution levels with the same 60 km swath:
- images in the SWIR band: 20 m
- multispectral images (green, red and near-infra-red): 10 m
- panchromatic images : 5 m
- supermode panchromatic images: 2.5 m
