For space optical remote sensor (SORS) with either film or time delay and integrate charge coupled device (TDI-CCD) imaging, in order to achieve higher resolution it requires more accurate real-time image motion compensation. This primarily depends on real-time computation of the image motion velocity vector (IMVV) and error budget and synthesis on related parameters. An effective modeling scheme is introduced and the derivation of IMVV equation, error budget and synthesis by Monte-Carlo method are presented in detail. This total solution was applied to SORS system test on orbit and has been confirmed to be very accurate based on the resolution, transfer function at Nyquist frequency, signal-to-noise ratio and average gray scale of the captured images.
