TSC-1 Optical Payload Hyperspectral Imager Preliminary Design and Performance Estimation

Abstract

The Thai Space Consortium aims at building capacities in space technologies and industries with the objective to develop satellites in Thailand. In this framework, the first Earth Observation satellite that will be developed by this consortium is called TSC-1. This satellite comprises a hyperspectral imager orbiting in a Sun-Synchronous Low-Earth Orbit at the altitude equal to 630 km. The optical payload is specified to provide data cubes with a Ground Sample Distance equal to 30 m, a swath equal to 30 km, a spectral resolution equal to 10 nm over the spectral domain from 400 nm to 1000 nm with a Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR) higher than 100. Firstly, we present the trade-off performed to select the design of the Front Telescope and the Spectrometer. Secondly, we describe the payload design and present the image quality, Modulation Transfer Function and distortion. Next, we establish the tolerance budget to estimate the performance of the optical system including manufacturing errors, assembly errors and stability of the mechanical structure. After that, we calculate the instrument’s spatial and spectral response functions and the contamination of the adjacent pixels due to the straylight. Finally, we estimate radiometric performance in both nadir pointing mode and forward motion compensation mode.
