Author(s): Oleg Vetrov; Alexander Dmitriev; Michail Pirogov

Paper Abstract

A comparative accuracy analysis is performed for two types of scanning IR Earth horizon sensors developed during a few last years. Resulting measurement error contribution of certain error sources, including instability of hardware parameters, as well as influence of seasons latitude variations of the Earth IR radiance, is estimated based on computer simulation. The conclusion is motivated concerning application of the obtained results for reducing measurement errors of some IR Earth horizon sensors currently exploiting on board of the satellites.
