Paper Abstract

A mosaic sensor on a moving platform staring at a fixed location sees a background motion on all detectors except the one at the stabilized location. This relative motion between the footprint and the structured background produces a noise factor in the system which can be comparable to the other noise sources. The effects in a surveillance sensor in low-altitude orbit is shown and a method of displaying a time history of the signal-to-noise ratio is demonstrated.
