Paper Abstract

In the framework of a contract with the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO), MATRA DEFENSE - DOD/UAO have developed, produced and tested 36 types LISS 1 - LISS 2 lenses and 12 LISS 3 lenses equipped with their interferential filters. These lenses are intended to form the optical systems of multispectral imaging sensors aboard Indian earth observation satellites IRS 1A, 1B, 1C, and 1D. It should be noted that the multispectrum cameras of the IRS 1A - 1B satellite have been in operation for two years and have given very satisfactory results according to ISRO. Each of these multispectrum LISS 3 cameras consists of lenses, each working in a different spectral bandwidth (B2: 520 - 590 nm; B3: 620 - 680 nm; B4: 770 - 860 nm; B5: 1550 - 1700 nm). In order to superimpose the images of each spectral band without digital processing, the image formats (60 mm) of the lenses are registered better that 2 micrometers and remain as such throughout all the environmental tests. Similarly, due to the absence of precise thermal control aboard the satellite, the lenses are as athermal as possible.
