Paper Abstract

A radiometric budget was developed to determine D-Star requirements for the IR detectors in an improved weather satellite. The analysis developed a model for the signal processing electronics that helped calculate the effective noise bandwidth and which substantially attenuated 1/f noise. The focal plane was designed by evaluating the requirements for power dissipation, number of detectors, image scan rate, processor bandwidth, and detector noise. Calibration will use both a standard blackbody source placed in a thermal-vacuum test chamber and a full aperture panel for in-flight measurements.
