Paper Abstract

This paper discusses some of the techniques and results of the calibration of a visible sensor which is to be placed on a space-based satellite. The sensor consists of a set of four 420 by 420 pixel imagers in a f/3 off-axis reimaging telescope with a 6.6 degree(s) by 1.4 degree(s) field of view 1. The sensor has been designed to perform a wide variety of surveillance missions, including; metric and radiometric measurements of resident space objects, the demonstration of a high degree of Out-of-Field of View Radiance Rejection (OFVR), and background radiance measurements. This broad range of applications impose stringent requirements on the sensor calibration and characterization.
