Paper Abstract

This paper introduces the Hypersat and Mission Demonstration Satellite programs, which are small satellite programs in the National Space Development Agency of Japan (NASDA). The goals of the programs are to establish sophisticated microelectronics and mechanics technology; to achieve low cost, high performance satellite; and to quickly respond to the variety of requests from end users. One author has an idea for a high-resolution optical imager which is small and light enough to be launched on this small satellite. This idea is presented in detail. A wide swath strip mode operation SAR design is also introduced.
