Paper Abstract

This work forms part of The Hyperspectral Mission (THM) program, funded by the Canadian Space Agency. The designs correspond to three mission profiles with the parameters listed in Table 1. Two of the potential missions are designed for a flight on the EXPRESS external pallet of the International Space Station (ISS). All designs make use of push-broom imaging, whereby a slit is scanned across the scene by the orbitiil motion of the platform. In the case of the Enhanced ISS and Small Satellite designs there is an option to use ground motion compensation to reduce the ground sampling distance. There is also a common requirement for all the designs for a 0.4ftm to 2.5pm spectral waveband but there are varying requirements for instrument field, spatial and spectral resolution.
