abstract

The High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) camera will be launched in August 2005 onboard NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) spacecraft. HiRISE supports the MRO Mission objectives through targeted imaging of nadir and off-nadir sites with high resolution and high signal to noise ratio [a]. The camera employs a 50 cm, f/24 all-reflective optical system and a time delay and integration (TDI) detector assembly to map the surface of Mars from an orbital altitude of ~ 300 km. The ground resolution of HiRISE will be < 1 meter with a broadband red channel that can image a 6 x 12 km region of Mars into a 20K x 40K pixel image. HiRISE will image the surface of Mars at three different color bands from 0.4 to 1.0 micrometers. In this paper the HiRISE mission and its camera optical design will be presented. Alignment and assembly techniques and test results will show that the HiRISE telescope's on-orbit wave front requirement of < 0.071 wave RMS (@633nm) will be met . The HiRISE cross track field is 1.14 degrees with IFOV 1.0 μ-radians.
