Objectives and Applications The MOMS-01 objectives/applications: Imaging of different ground targets with low-to-high contrast and albedo (arid regions, regions with dense and sparse vegetation coverage, coastal zones, mountainous terrain, open ocean islands) to demonstrate the instrument capabilities for thematic mapping. The multispectral feature of MOMS permitted in particular studies in such fields as: general geologic mapping, mineral resources exploration, hydrology; mapping and monitoring of renewable resources (agriculture, forestry, urban and regional planning). The MOMS-02 objectives/applications: Stereoscopic visual observation (with a high degree of interpretability), provision of high-quality topographic regional maps (scale 1:50000) and digital terrain models (< 5 m of ground pixel size), test of a digital photogrammetric observation technique and processing system (prototype), correlation of high-resolution panchromatic data with multispectral data.
