In the course of the second German Spacelab mission D2, which is scheduled for launch in 1992, the MOMS-02 camera is intended to acquire digital threefold stereo imagery of the Earth's surface from space. Extensive simulations were performed in order to examine the influence of various arrangements of the three sensor lines in the focal plane of the camera, the precision of observed exterior orientation parameters, the distance between the so-called orientation images, and the number and distribution of ground control points on the resulting accuracy of point determination. Further investigations were carried out into the use of a given Digital Terrain Model as control information. The simulations are based on a bundle adjustment modified for the processing of three-line imagery. -from Authors
