Abstract

A single-channel prototype pushbroom imager has been developed to the specifications required for forestry remote-sensing applications and for mapping. It is based on a commercially available 6000-element linear array for which a special wide-angle, high modulation transfer function lens was designed and fabricated. The test was flown aboard a twin-engine jet aircraft. The sensor has produced high-quality imagery with pixel sizes down to 25 cm.
