Paper Abstract

Staring mosaics and line-array scanners are compared in their clutter suppression characteristics, as measured by signal-to-clutter ratio. Established sensor designs for detecting a moving point source target were selected for the comparison. Factors for target speed and crossing geometry are included in the analysis, but temporally varying background is neglected. Results are given in terms of the line-of-sight drift rate for the mosaic which would yield the same signal-to-clutter ratio as the scanner.
