Paper Abstract

The AWFI camera (Advanced Wide Field Imaging Camera) is part of the payload for the AMAZONIA 1 satellite. This camera and its GSE - Ground Support Equipments, are under development by the Brazilian company Opto Eletrônica S.A. AWFI camera will be used for remote sensing of the Earth and will image a ground swath of 754 km, with a ground resolution of 40m at nadir, in four spectral bands that cover the range of wavelength from 450nm to 890nm. This camera is composed of the optoelectronic block and the signal processing electronics. The opto-electronic block is composed of three identical optical channels and a mechanical frame. This work aims at presenting the optical system developed for the optical channel of this camera and its theoretical performance.
