Paper Abstract

SAC is a compact camera for imaging in visible-NIR spectral ranges. SAC provides high-resolution images over the wide geometric and spectral ranges: 10 m GSD and 50 km swath-width in the spectral ranges of 520 ~ 890 nm. The missions incorporate various imaging operations: multi-spectral imaging; super swath-width imaging with cameras in parallel; along-track stereo imaging with slanted 2 cameras. In this paper, SAC is introduced with design and performance. Though developed for small satellites, presenting development status and test results will demonstrate the potential capability for worldwide remote sensing groups: short development period, cost-effectiveness, and high performance.
