Paper Abstract

Funded by the Ministry of Commerce, Industry, and Energy of Korea, Satrec Initiative has initiated the development of the prototype model of a TMA-based electro-optical system as part of the national space research and development program. Its optical aperture diameter is 120 mm, the effective focal length is 462 mm, and its full field-of-view is 5.08 degrees. The dimension is about 600 mm × 400 mm × 400 mm and its weight is less than 15 kg. To demonstrate its performance and versatility, multi-spectral imaging in visible and near-infrared region was chosen as the application of the prototype. In this paper, the progress made so far on the prototype development and the future plan will be presented.
