Slide 21

SRCA Functions In the ghostly alignment mode , a light source from the coordinating circle (SIS) gives enlightenment to the noticeable (VIS), close infrared (NIR), and short wave infrared (SWIR) groups. The light originating from the coordinating circle is bobbed off of a toroidal (3-D donut shape) hand-off reflect into the passage of an adjusted Czerny-Turner monochromator (an instrument that gets the light of one wavelength or exceptionally limit band of the light range). The monochromator contains an engine driven grinding/reflect get together, which is utilized as a part of conjunction with a channel wheel (to shut out-of-band vitality) to diffract the light into one of the VIS, NIR, or SWIR groups. The diffracted light leaving the monochromator is then sent into a Cassegrain telescope that moves the light to the right rise and edge (called collimating) and after that skips it off of an altered overlay reflect onto the Scan Mirror. The light starting here travels through MODIS' principle optical framework and onto the identifiers where the resultant adjustment information is incorporated into the general sweep information. At least, one SRCA ghostly wavelength estimation is taken per insurgency of the Scan Mirror. PC demonstrating has demonstrated that the precision of this adjustment strategy is inside 1 nanometer . The SRCA framework is likewise ready to perform self-alignment by embeddings didymium glass close to the light source and detecting the SRCA's reaction profile utilizing a photodiode at the exit of the monochromator. In the radiometric adjustment mode , the passageway and leave openings to the SRCA are open and a silvered reflect replaces the grinding. This distinction makes the monochromator into a transfer, where light from the incorporating circle is sent to the passageway gap for the alignment of MODIS' intelligent groups. In this mode, the SRCA is intended to give six brilliance levels that are steady to inside one percent over an orbital time of 100 minutes. This solidness is accomplished by a brilliance criticism circle that depends on contribution from a temperature-controlled photodiode.

Slide 22

SRCA Functions (proceeded) In the spatial enrollment mode , the passage to the monochromator is open, and a reticle example (a matrix or example that sets up scale or position) is put at the exit of the monochromator. Notwithstanding the VIS-NIR-SWIR enlightenment, the radiation from a resistive warmer is coupled into the framework by means of an ITO dichroic beamsplitter (parts the light into two hues), which gives vitality to bolster the spatial enrollment for the warm groups. The uncommonly planned reticle designs at the leave opening of the monochromator are then anticipated into the MODIS optical framework, which are then re-imaged and filtered by the different FPAs to produce the information for the spatial enlistment calculation. The outcome is a record of the FPA spatial enlistment over the life of the instrument, which is vital to exhibiting MODIS' dependability.
