The Modular Optoelectronic Multispectral/Stereo Scanner (MOMS-02) is a newly designed sensor that provides multispectral coverage in 4 wavebands including the visible and near- infrared range. It is also equipped with a three line along-track stereo device recording fore/aft and high resolution nadir panchromatic data. Data acquired during the STS-55/D2 have been investigated with regard to their technical performance and their spectral significance. Different algorithms are used for preprocessing of raw data and merge of panchromatic and multispectral information. With some limitations, radiometry, entropy, SNR and LSF performances are comparable to operational sensors. Coefficients for a transfer function from DN-values to spectral radiance based on inter-sensor calibration to TM are presented. Results of variance/covariance analyses indicate a 10 - 15% improved spectral decorrelation for MOMS-02 bands as compared to those of operational sensors with broader band design.
