Due to the influence of optical distortion, TDICCD camera will have imaging blur in the process of push broom imaging. From the angle of focal plane stitching, the principle of imaging blur leaded by optical distortion is analyzed, and a compensation method of nonlinear focal plane stitching is proposed. The principle of the method and the mathematical model of optimum stitching design are introduced. Take the off-axis three-mirror optical system as an example, the focal length of the optical system is 10m, the F number is 16, the design field of view 2ω is 1.4°, and the maximum distortion in the design field is 1%.The nonlinear stitching method is designed, and the optimal stitching angle is calculated. Compared with the linear stitching method, the design result of the nonlinear stitching method can decrease the maximum fuzzy value from 0.61 pixels to 0.2 pixels, and the 𝒇𝑴𝑻,𝑫 from 0.858 to 0.984.This study could provide the reference for focal plane design of long focal length and wide field space camera.
