Paper Abstract

This paper presents the design of the balloon atmospheric mosaic measurement (BAMM) IIA optical subsystem. The BAMM IIA system is a cryogenically cooled infrared mosaic sensor built for a high altitude balloon measurement program. This paper discusses the optics subsystem designed to operate in the temperature range of 78 K to 85 K. The optics subsystems consist of three infrared telescopes mounted on a turret to permit in-flight selection, 11 dielectric filters for band selection in the spectral region from 2.6 to 5.0 um, a cold chopper, and two reference radiometric sources. This paper presents some aspects of this design and evaluation of the components making up the optics subsystem.
