11 November 1996 MODIS contamination control requirements and implementation
Author Affiliations +
The moderate resolution scanning spectroradiometer (MODIS) is a multiband scanning instrument containing low scatter optics whose performance depends on low particulate and molecular contamination levels. The derivation of the MODIS instrument cleanliness requirements is discussed, along with the contamination control necessary to ensure that the requirements are met and the performance of the MODIS instrument is not degraded. Representative cleanliness monitoring results from the protoflight model, currently being integrated and tested at Santa Barbara Remote Sensing (SBRS), are also presented.
