Abstract
This paper presents the rationale, based on sensitivity and reduced optical aperture, for selecting a staring sensor over a scanning sensor for space applications where a weak target signal must be extracted from a heavily cluttered background. Performance requirements are also discussed, including parameters of material, sensitivity, uniformity, dead space, resolution, and dynamic range. The important processes in signal processing are presented: filtering, correlation, detection, and tracking.
