Description

Earth observation (EO) payload performances in the infrared spectral region from geostationary platforms are often limited by spatial resolution. In this paper, we investigate an instrumental concept leveraging a compressive sensing paradigm and super-resolution architecture to implement an EO payload from a geostationary platform aimed at the monitoring of wildfires with a nominal spatial sampling distance of 500 m. The core device of the instrument is a European-technology-based micromirror array under study for space applications. Besides payload specifications and working principles, the main critical aspects and the expected impact on EO applications are discussed.
