Pelican is an airborne multispectral image sensor including up to eight cameras mounted on the same platform. Each camera, dedicated to one spectral band, is equipped with a 16 millions pixels CCD array, 12 bit per pixel. A forward motion compensation is remoted by the aircraft GPS in real time which allows to use narrow filters (up to 20nm) simultaneously with a very high spatial resolution (20cm). The Pelican configuration is versatile in term of lens, filters and band number as it could be adapted to the scientist user needs. The best final product is a georeferenced multispectral image expressed in at-sensor radiance.
