Abstract
The scanning and telescope field of view requirements for making Earth Resources (ER) and Meteorological (MET) phe-nomena observations from a Synchronous Earth Observation Satellite (SEOS) have been defined. The equations relating spacecraft scan capability to user scan field of view requirements are given and evaluated using four different telescope fields of view. The tradeoffs between telescope field-of-view and user scan fields of view requirements are shown, and it was determined that a 0.6 degree by 1.2 degree telescope FOV is optimum for the SEOS telescope. It was shown that an internal scan as well as external scan is required to satisfy both ER and MET users.
