We present an overview of the development of optical systems for imaging spectrometers designed for remote sensing of the Earth. Technical characteristics are given for airborne as well as spaceborne imaging systems which were developed in recent years. Particular emphasis on peculiarities of optical system design including scanning subsystem, entrance optics, and spectrometer.
