Abstract
The RESERVES program sensor concept, a multiwavelength optical system with two standard focal planes, handles many missions by using commandable readout and processing options. Performance (coverage rate, resolution, spectral data) and rapid operational readiness are achieved with the size, power, and communication link constraints of a 450-kg spacecraft. Missions achievable include weather and oceanographic mapping, earth-disk scanning for strategic warming, focused rapid-repeat theater scanning for intratheater missiles, land and ocean remote sensing, and space-object surveillance.
