Paper Abstract

The Sensor Imaging Payload for the Navy EarthMap Observer (NEMO) satellite consists of a hyperspectral imager and a coaligned panchromatic imager. The sensors have a ground swath width of 30 km, with a ground sample distance of 30 m (or 60 m with pixel binning) for the hyperspectral imager, and 5 m for the panchromatic imager. The hyperspectral imager has a spectral resolution of 10 nm over the 0.4 - 2.5 micrometer region, and the panchromatic imager has a 0.49 - 0.69 micrometer bandpass. The payload weighs less than 61 kg, uses less than 90 watts power on average, and is designed for a five-year mission lifetime.
