MAJIS_BORESIGHT_ALIGNEMENT
MAJIS_BORESIGHT_ALIGNEMENT
Star sequence for geometrical calibration.
A star is initially pointed using the MAJIS boresight, then MAJIS is operated with the scan mechanism at high resolution (1/3 of IFOV) over 18 lines centered in the star. Then this operation is successively observed after 4 S/C repointings of 1.5° around X and Y.
Pointing : inertial
Satellite orientation: S/C pointing the star and MAJIS scans
Duration: 18 to 180 sec per position (5 positions in total)+ stabilization time for repointing not taken into account

Once per year A star like Arcturus or equivalent type/magnitude can provide enough signal for the measurement.
any rule that is used to schedule the observation: repetition rules, continuous (plasma instruments), one-off, every orbit, every day, etc
TBD
conditions that make the observation not possible (e.g. thruster firing)
