Abstract
There are some special requirements for meteorology and oceanography remote sensor. For example: (1) Wide cross- track swath. The swath width of the modern remote sensor can be +/- 55 degrees against the nadir of the satellite. (2) Low Linear Polarization Sensitivity (LPS). The LPS should be LSEQ 2 degrees within 0.43 micrometers <EQ (lambda) <EQ 2.2 micrometers . The scan subsystem that can perform wide swath scanning and reduce LPS must be searched as a support to the requirements of these sensor. The two-mirror compensating/active configuration is the preferred candidate for the preliminary baseline.
