Paper Abstract

The potential benefit of combined spectral and spatial imagery in the classification/monitoring study of events and processes has created strong interest in the class of remote sensors identified as imaging spectrometers. The production and commercial availability of low cost, multiplexed two-dimensional FPAs, and fast signal processing hardware and advances in reflective optical engineering have permitted the developments of a second tier of instruments moderate in both performance and cost. When combined with maturing technologies for lightweight, lowcost optical subsystems with glass-like wavefront properties based on Silicon Carbide (SiC), imaging spectrometers compatible with use on small satellites, sounding rockets and unmanned airborne vehicles emerge. Demonstration of this sensor technology in the MWIR will be made via a spectrally versatile concept for monitoring of combustion events occurring in a Learjet microgravity environment.
