Paper Abstract

A novel pushbroom sensor concept is introduced which incorporates a faceted field-condensing mirror to image the same ground pixel simultaneously in several spectral bands, while eliminating temporal misregistration and MTF smear due to earth rotation. This paper presents an overview of the instrument concept and the fabrication and performance details for the mirror.
