Paper Abstract

An interferometer spectrometer rocket payload system to measure infrared auroral emissions from 5 to 22 micrometers has been in design and development for several years. System specifications for wavelength coverage and sensitivity require that the instrument must function at cryogenic temperatures. This paper will describe the scanning Michelson interferometer system, together with the optical, electronic and cryogenic methods employed to achieve an operational sounding rocket experiment and its successful field test.
