Sample text

Global site accessibility is guaranteed within four days for the chosen orbit and with 30 km swath width and ± 30° off-nadir pointing capability. The protective cover surrounding the instrument, which is used as a structural support for the thermal radiators, the instrument electronics, and the telescope baffles have been omitted in this view. 3 Layout of the optical system for the EnMAP hyperspectral instrument. Both plots have the same scale. The nonlinear behavior is due to the dispersion characteristics of the glasses used for the prisms and their combination.
