What are steerable sensors and how can I simulate swath coverage?

Steerable sensors are sensors that can be “steered” or pointed at different angles. The range of angles in which the sensor can observe forms a “field of regard” depicting the possible areas that can be acquired. Within this field of regard, the sensor may acquire a smaller area according to the sensor aperture angle, which is often called a beam or swath. This steering capability increases flexibility and provides greater possibilities to acquire an area on the Earth.
