Paper Abstract

In recent years, a tendency is established to reduce the size of orbital spacecrafts while preserving their functional capabilities. The modern element base allows to create inexpensive Earth-sensing satellites having 1U-2U form factor, which are capable to form images of the Earth's surface with the medium spatial resolution. To perform synthesis of such optoelectronic remote sensing equipment, a relatively simple calculation technique is required. In this article, a technique has been developed to estimate an information system "Earth’s surface – atmosphere – television camera". It allows to determine the basic parameters of a lens and a matrix detector of the television camera, based on harmonization of their resolution and providing a given spatial resolution on the surface of the Earth. By using the proposed technique, a lens and a matrix detector have been selected. They provide geometric resolution of 25 m at the orbit with a height of 600 km. The resulting technical solution enables to fulfil applied tasks, for example, in agriculture, and can be implemented in a nanosatellite with the 1U-2U form factor.
