Paper Abstract

HRIS is proposed as a spaceborne, high-resolution imaging spectrometer designed to image a variable (+/- 30 degree(s)) 30 km swath with 40 m SSP pixel size in the spectral range from 450 to 2340 nm with an average 10 nm spectral bandwidth. HRIS is conceived as a push-broom imager with two-dimensional detector arrays for spectral and spatial coverage. The challenging requirements for this instrument will be discussed as well as the concept derived against these requirements. Emphasis is on the optical definition, particularly the spectrometer optics, the focal plane assembly--here mostly the hybrid SWIR CMT detector array--and the calibration concept which includes two external references, ratioing radiometers and an internal reference. The other subunits will be described briefly only. The presentation will conclude with a preliminary development plan.
