Abstract
The derivation of earth relative motion (or "smear rate") in a step-stare spaceborne optical system is presented. Suggested methods of compensating for the smear by focal-plane manipulation are also given. The simulation results of smearing for a 4-hour orbit optical system operating in a step-stare mode (above 45° North Latitude) are provided.
