    Abstract

    In this paper we present an evolution of the single-pixel camera architecture, called 'pushframe', which addresses the limitations of pushbroom cameras in space-based applications. In particular, it is well-suited to observing fast moving scenes while retaining high spatial resolution and sensitivity. We show that the system is capable of producing colour images with good fidelity and scalable resolution performance. The principle of our design places no restriction on the spectral range to be captured, making it suitable for wide infrared imaging.
