Overview Edit

The Landsat Data Continuity Mission (LDCM) is a joint initiative of NASA and the U.S. Geological Survey to maintain a robust archive of Landsat data and imagery by launching the LDCM spacecraft (LDCM-1) with its instrument payload.

The main instrument in LCDM-1's payload is the Operational Land Imager (OLI) instrument. A passive (i.e., fixed) imaging radiometer, OLI would capture imagery of the Earth’s surface as panchromatic/multi-spectral bands at 30 meters to 15 meters (moderate) resolution. This capability is similar to instruments deployed on Landsat missions 4-7. In addition, a Thermal Infrared Sensing Instrument (TIRS) is being developed.
