Paper Abstract

Inspired by the retinal structure of elephantnose fish, bioinspired photosensitivity enhancer (BPE) with many pyramid microphotocollectors can enhance the image intensity and the imaging capability under low light conditions. To study the application of BPE on space remote sensing, this paper introduced BPE into remote sensors and analyzed several parameters such as ground sampling distance, signal, noise, signal to noise ratio and so on in normal and low light conditions and compared BPE with binning technology. The results showed that, as an optical enhancing method, BPE has better performance than binning technology. The detectability of conventional systems under low light conditions could be improved by placing BPE in front of the sensors.
