Abstract. The accurate calibration of the line of sight (LOS) is very important for a high-resolution imaging satellite, especially in a system as Co3D, whose mission is to produce 3D elevation models. A calibration error immediately translates into an altimetry error. Co3D has a matrix and the reading of the lines is done in rolling shutter, each line is read at a different date. So, the geometry of the image is affected by the dynamic perturbations of the attitude during the acquisition time.

The objective of the study is to propose a calibration method accurate to 0.1 pixel at 90 percentile. The images needed for calibration must only require one or two satellite passes over the same site, and be compatible with the pointing agility. The method must be robust to residual errors in attitude knowledge.

The assumptions of the simulations have been modified in this article to keep the performance of Co3D confidential.
