Paper Abstract

A concept for an advanced earth resources system was described in May 1981 at the ERIM Symposium in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Based on those concepts, this paper discusses the improved performance obtained in a modified instrument that includes new optics and mecha-nisms. An essential element of this design is a combined VIS/SWIR detector array with integral color filters that is described in other papers in this seminar. This array is cooled to 125 K by a passive radiator for which a design and thermal analysis are presented. A system is outlined for absolute calibration on orbit, using reflected sunlight. The predicted performance of this instrument is presented in graphs and simulated pictures.
