Paper Abstract

The MATS satellite aims at observing airglow and noctilucent clouds in the mesosphere. The main instrument consists of a six channels limb imager in the near-ultraviolet and near-infrared. A high signal-to-noise ratio is required for detecting these mesospheric phenomena: 100 and 500 for ultraviolet and infrared, respectively. This is achieved by an optical design minimizing stray-light, but also with a dedicated design of the read-out analogue chain for the CCD on each channel. The requirements and expected light level on the imaging channels are brie y discussed before focusing on the CCD read-out analogue chain, for which the design and performances are presented.
