Paper Abstract

The project of a microsatellite intended for remote exploration of the atmosphere, ground and sea surface is considered. The realization of hardware part of payload of the satellite is based on the idea to use the turnable acousto- optical filter in ultra-violet and visible ranges of frequency enabling to ensure the programmed varying of one with (Delta) (lambda) less than 1 nm in area 0.2 divided by 0.9 mkm and using the counter of photons with high spatial resolution as a recording sensitive sensor. The given approach permits us to ensure the design realization of the small-size space platform, not requiring three axis precise orientation and stabilization of picture on sensor, which simultaneously is performing the role of star-tracker for detection of the satellite attitude motion.
