METimage: an innovative multi-spectral imaging radiometer for the EUMETSAT polar system follow-on satellite mission

Matthias Alpers, Christian Brüns, Alexander Pillukat, Josiane Costeraste, Errico Armandillo, Nikos Karafolas
2017 International Conference on Space Optics — ICSO 2008  
The evolving needs of the meteorological community concerning the EUMETSAT Polar System follow-on satellite mission (Post-EPS) require the development of a high-performance multi-spectral imaging radiometer  ...  As the scan speed is high with respect to the satellite ground speed, the scan lines provide gapless ground coverage, in spite of the scanner rotating through some "dead angle" where no imaging is performed  ...  So the development focuses on a system design, which has the desirable property of weakly interdependent subsystems and on mastering the core technologies within each subsystem.  ...
