Paper Abstract

Sandia National Laboratories has developed a fieldable wide-angle detection system which utilizes wide dynamic range spectrometer and radiometer subsystems to generate simultaneous, independent measurements of incident optical radiation collected through a common aperture. The large dynamic ranges of the subsystems can create large amounts of continuous data which must be processed in real time to avoid saturating the system. Thus, the spectrometric and radiometric data are sent to a system processor subsystem which, due to the inherent sensitivity and timing differences between the two sensor subsystems, executes a complex data fusion algorithm in an effort to fully characterize the incident radiation. The raw subsystem data and the fused data are logged to a system disk and displayed on an operator display.
