Paper Abstract

The design of multispectral scanners optimized for a certain job or set of jobs is being done more frequently now that multispectral collection and exploitation technologies are maturing. In this paper, the conceptual design procedure is reviewed. Then the role of computer simulation is illustrated using the example of the design study for the Thematic Mapper. Although this study was performed ten years ago, it still illustrates the principles of the use of computer simulation.
