Paper Abstract

We report results from a demonstration of a MWIR non-scanning, high speed imaging spectrometer capable of simultaneously recording spatial and spectral data from a rapidly varying target scene. High speed spectral imaging was demonstrated by collecting spectral and spatial snapshots of filtered blackbodies and combustion products. The instrument is based on computed tomography concepts and operates in a mid-wave infrared band of 3.0 to 4.6 micrometer. Raw images were recorded at a video frame rate of 30 fps using a 160 X 120 InSb focal plane array. A reconstruction of a simple object is presented.
