1 May 1994 Assessment of image sensor technology for future NASA missions
Author Affiliations +
An assessment of solid-state UV/visible image sensor technology for future NASA missions is presented. The paper attempts to summarize the state of the art in image sensor technology in the United States, Canada, Japan, and Europe. The state of the art and future trends are compared to a forecast of future NASA needs in scientific image sensors for planetary exploration, earth science, astrophysics, and spacecraft systems such as star trackers and optical communications.
