The signal-to-noise ratio for a selection of integration times, at an orbit height of 500 km, is shown in the Figure below, at. A radiance level of 100 W·m-2·sr-1·µm-1 is assumed acrossthe spectral range for all of the SNR values. The figure also shows the relative through-system efficiency of the three spectral bands inclusive of sensor quantum efficiency (QE), lens transmittance and NIR blocking filter transmittance.
