Paper Abstract

When a satellite-borne mosaic sensor stares at a fixed point on earth, most of the detectors have a relative motion with respect to the earth. The effects of this motion on sensor performance have been presented in earlier SPIE papers. In these earlier examples the rates were calculated using the differential position during a time interval. The rate equations presented in this paper are true derivatives rather than differentials. The rate equations are also presented for several sets of angles related to this problem, including off-line-of-sight angles.
