Paper Abstract

This paper shows how atmospheric scattering can affect the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), the spatial resolution, and the noise equivalent reflectance difference (NEAp) of an oblique CCD reconnaissance camera operating in the pushbroom mode. An example is given that compares these quantities for 75° and 85° oblique imagery with the near-nadir case for a flat, horizontal target. The effect of imaging the target at various azimuths with respect to the sun is examined.
