Paper Abstract

The modular optoelectronic multispectral/stereo scanner (MOMS-02) is a second generation instrument, flown during the D2 mission aboard Space Shuttle flight STS-55. The sensor provided multispectral data in four wavebands covering the visible and near-infrared range. In addition, MOMS-02 is equipped with a three line along-track stereo device that recorded for/aft and nadir panchromatic data. Centering and widths of all bands for the spectral and panchromatic modules have been newly designed. Thus, the narrower and distinct positioned bandpasses allow a somewhat more distinct recording of vegetational targets in the VIS/NIR range and an improvement in discrimination of various rock/soil types independently of the very high spatial resolution. The bandpass used for the panchromatic modules has also been rearranged to optimize for the contrast of vegetation to rock/soil targets. Entropy, SNR, and PSF performances are comparable to operational sensors like HRV or TM. However, data of band 3 are slightly weaker in their performance especially in the SNR. First imagery are presented on the basis of a merging concept for high resolving panchromatic and multispectral data.
