Paper Abstract

Lincoln Laboratory, Massachusetts Institute of Technology has built and tested the space-based visible (SBV) sensor to be flown on the Ballistic Missile Defense Office's Midcourse Space Experiment spacecraft. SBV, one of a group of sensors on the spacecraft, is designed to perform above-the-horizon surveillance experiments and acquire visible/VNIR band data (450 to 950 nm) on targets and backgrounds. This paper describes the flight configuration of SBV and some calibration results.
