RESOURCESAT-1 carries three cameras similar to those of IRS-1C and IRS-1D but with vastly improved spatial resolutions - a high resolution Linear Imaging Self Scanner (LISS-4) operating in three spectral bands in the visible and Near Infrared Region (VNIR) with 5.8 metre spatial resolution and steerable up to 26 degrees across track to obtain stereoscopic imagery and achieve five day revisit capability; a medium resolution LISS-3 operating in three spectral bands in VNIR and one in Short Wave Infrared (SWIR) band with 23.5 metre spatial resolution; and an Advanced Wide Field Sensor (AWiFS) operating in three spectral bands in VNIR and one band in SWIR with 56 metre spatial resolution.
