Design of the OCTS, a high-precision remote-sensing instrument for NASDA's Advanced Earth Observing Satellite (ADEOS) for simultaneous measurements of the ocean color and sea-surface temperatures, is presented. The OCTS uses a rotating mirror to scan a swath of the earth 1400 km wide from sun-synchronous orbit at 800 km altitude. It is planned to be placed into orbit in 1995 to provide 3 Mbps image data for visible to thermal infrared spectral range, in 12 bands.
