Paper Abstract

NASA's Mission to Planet Earth is a multi-platform, multi-orbit remote sensing and data distribution program designed to increase our understanding of both the Earth's environment and our potential impact on it. A preliminary Geostationary Earth Observatory (GEO) remote sensing instrument complement has been defined, based on the scientific requirements for this mission. These instruments include optical imagers, atmospheric sounders, passive microwave sensors and others. This paper discusses on-going studies which are focusing on advanced technologies to relieve the severe environmental and optical constraints experienced by earth- sensing instruments on a three-axis stabilized spacecraft in geostationary orbit.
