Abstract

The Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera (LROC) consists of one Wide Angle Camera (WAC) for synoptic multispectral imaging and two Narrow Angle Cameras (NAC) to provide high-resolution images (0.5 to 2.0 m pixel scale) of key targets. LROC was not designed as a stereo system, but can obtain stereo pairs through images acquired from two orbits (with at least one off-nadir slew). Off-nadir rolls interfere with the data collection of the other instruments, so during the nominal mission LROC slew opportunities are limited to three per day.
