Abstract

We present the catadioptric optical design solution for the stereo channel of the imaging system SIMBIOSYS for the BepiColombo European Space Agency mission to Mercury. The main scientific objectives of the instrument are the three-dimensional global mapping of the entire surface of Mercury in the panchromatic band and imaging of selected areas in four broad colored bands; both tasks have to be accomplished with a scale factor of 50m per pixel at periherm. The system consists of an original compact layout in which the two stereo subchannels share a common detector; also, the optical components are common to the two subchannels, with the exception of the first element, which is a rhomboid prism. The field of view of each subchannel is about 5°×5° with a scale factor of 23 arcsec/pixel. The ray-tracing simulation of the system shows that the design guarantees optimal aberration balancing over the entire field of view and the entire wavelength range covered by the instrument, with ensquared energy of the order of 80% in one pixel.

Schematics of the possible stereo imaging configurations (adapted from [18]). (a) Generic stereo imaging configuration: two independent cameras oriented along two slanted viewing directions. In (b), there is a single camera with large FoV simultaneously covering both stereo angles and also the nadir-looking direction, if needed. In (c), the stereo configuration proposed for STC, in which most of the optical elements and the detector are common to both subchannels, is represented. Not drawn to scale; the expected image aspect and size are reported as a square area placed near each configuration.

Fig. 3
Fig. 3

Stereoscopic Imaging Channel initial optical design, with a common aperture stop. The whole optical design (the two subchannels) is shown in the plane containing the along-track and nadir directions. For each subchannel, an optical path for each filter is depicted. As can be seen, each subchannel has a FS to limit the diffused light, and a common AS is placed between lenses L 1 and L 2 .

Fig. 4
Fig. 4

Final STC overall optical design layout. The whole STC optical design is shown: in the upper part of the image, the configuration is viewed in the plane defined by the along-track and nadir directions; in the lower part, the projection in the orthogonal plane, the one including the across-track and nadir directions, is given. In the inset, an enlarged view of the focal plane region helps to better follow the rays that are focalized on the APS detector.
