Airborne Ocean Color Imager

The AOCI is a high altitude multispectral scanner built by Daedalus Enterprises, designed for oceanographic remote sensing. It provides 10-bit digitization of eight bands in the visible/near-infrared region of the spectrum, plus two 8-bit bands in the near and thermal infrared. The spectral bands are:

Channel Wavelength,
micrometers
1 0.436 - 0.455
2 0.481 - 0.501
3 0.511 - 0.531
4 0.554 - 0.575
5 0.610 - 0.631
6 0.655 - 0.676
7 0.741 - 0.800
8 0.831 - 0.897
9 0.989 - 1.054
10 8.423 - 12.279
