Resource Basic Information
  Resource Id: urn:geoss:csr:resource:urn:uuid:25db32fa-b676-47fa-b5aa-e63eb6e65dbe
  Name: NASA EO-1 Satellite
  Abbreviation: EO-1
  Description: The Earth Observing-1 (EO-1) mission, as part of the New Millennium Program (NMP), developed and validated a number of instrument and spacecraft bus breakthrough technologies designed to enable the development of future earth imaging observatories that will have a significant increase in performance while also having reduced cost and mass. More specifically, EO-1 has validated a multispectral instrument that is a significant improvement over the Landsat 7 ETM+ instrument; has validated a hyperspectral land imaging instrument and the unique science that can be performed with hyperspectral data; and has validated the ability of a low-spatial/high-spectral resolution imager that can correct systematic errors in the apparent surface reflectances caused by atmospheric effects, primarily water vapor. Keywords: polar orbiting, hyperspectral imager, multispectral imager, pointable, autonomous ground system, sensor web, OGC web services.
