{{#category_index:M|multispectral scanner (MSS)}} A device that determines the amplitude in each of several frequency windows of a series of samples from successive locations. Early Landsat images (q.v.) included such a device and looked at areas in four bands: green (band 4), red (band 5), a narrow near-infrared band (band 6), and a broader infrared band (band 7). See Figure I-1.
