Research on Application of PcModtran in Design of Satelliteborne Optical Remote Sensor


Article Preview

Aiming at importance of atmospheric transport model in the collectivity design of ground target observation remote sensor, based on analysis of PcModtran application feasibility, amend geometrical model of remote sensor design is presented, then discussed the calculation of PcModtran for energy transmittivity of all kinds of pollutants atmospheric in detect path, all kinds of radiance in entrance pupil radiance of remote sensor by emulation instance, probed into the method that applying PcModtran filtering function analyze photoelectrons number of radiance on the focal face of detector, foundation that verify collectivity design index of satelliteborne optical remote sensor is presented. Successful application in some type secondary satellite, it verified the method is of guidance function on the collectivity design.
