Earth Observation constellation demo based on mirrors from range of 400nm to 12um.

Description

The optical system design based on precise deflected mirrors will allow to scan the Earth's surface in the range from 400 nm to 12,000 nm, which also means the possibility of thermographic observation of the planet. See objects of size less than 5 meters from a distance of 500 kilometres. The use of mirrors instead of lenses makes the system free from many optical distortions/aberrations and what is the most important – allows it to be used for multispectral applications in a very wide electromagnetic spectrum.
