A concept for a spaceborne tactical sensor has been developed, which will have the ability to detect and geolocate targets of interest in near real time. A complement of panchromatic, multispectral and hyperspectral imaging sensors allows flexibility for high spectral and high spatial feature extraction and exploitation. The concept includes a high performance, compact optical design. The key advantage of this tactical sensor is an integrated system capability which allows simultaneous operation of the imaging sensors.
