Abstract
Preliminary design and basic performance of the VNIR and CSP subsystems of the ASTER instrument for the EOS-A platform is discussed. The VNIR is characterized by the high spatial resolution of 15 x 15 m and stereoscopic imaging in the 0.76-0.86 micron band. It corrects the geometric aberration caused by the rotation of the earth and calibrates the radiometer with the halogen lamps on orbit. The CSP is based on a signal processor which multiplexes system telemetry for image data, packetizes image data in CCSDS format, converts parallel signals into serial, and controls output to EOS-A transfer frame generator.
