Paper Abstract

ISIR (Infrared Spectral Imaging Radiometer) was designed and fabricated by Space Instruments, Inc. and flown by NASA/GSFC on the Discovery shuttle mission STS-85 in August 1997. ISIR collected over 60 hours of infrared data on a variety of cloud, land, and ocean scenes. Data was obtained in four spectral bands with a single, uncooled microbolometer detector array operating in the pushbroom mode. Data was collected with varying amounts of TDI (Time Delay & Integration) to enhance system sensitivity. The design of the ISIR instrument and selected mission results will be presented.
