Paper Abstract

The Global UV imager (GUVI) is an imaging spectrometer on the NASA TIMED spacecraft. GUVI produces simultaneous monochromatic images at five 'colors' as its field of view is scanned from horizon to horizon. The instrument consists of a scan mirror feeding a parabolic telescope and Rowland circle spectrometer, with a wedge-and-strip detector at the focal plane. We describe the design, and give an overview of the environmental parameters that will be measured. GUVI is a modified version of the Special Sensor UV Spectrographic Imager (SSUSI), which will fly on the DMSP Block 5D3 satellites S-16 through S-20, We present some results from the optical calibration of the five SSUSI units.
