Paper Abstract

General performance specifications are described for photographic and electrooptical multispectral cameras to be used for remote sensing purposes. The effect of natural limitations on the specification for the smallest reflectance difference detectable is discussed. It is shown that reflectance differences of 0.01 can be detected from orbit by a nearly diffraction-limited P3.5 system of 1-m focal length in a spectral interval from 600 to 700 nm and with an effective instantaneous field of view of 30 m, using a solid-state array of detectors having a noise equivalent signal of 1 μJ/m2.
