1 September 1995 Push-broom reconnaissance camera with time expansion for a (Martian) landing: site certification

A push-broom imaging camera with time expansion, selected for its ability to generate images with high resolution and high radiometric signal, is described for accurate site-certification from space. The imaging system providing the high resolution imaging requires a sensor with an increased dwell time to generate a high radiometric signal. This may be accomplished by pointing the camera at each pixel for a longer interval of time than that available due to the sensor motion in the push-broom imaging configuration. This is referred to as the push-broom imaging with time expansion. The use of the camera with time expansion may be applicable to any remote sensing imaging problem that requires simultaneously high spatial resolution and a high level of radiometric signal. For surveying a Martian landing site, it is necessitated by the imaging from an autonomous orbiting sensor that's speed is determined by its orbit and the planet mass.
