Paper Abstract

Tight resource allocations are a driving concern for interplanetary remote sensing instruments. Through ongoing development work on Earth-orbiting sensor instruments EMS Space Science has developed the expertise to build extremely efficient and compact spectrometers for multiple planetary applications. We compare the Superiority of high resolution spectrometer technologies and discuss the improvements associated with field-widening. We present new concepts for high-performance miniature planetary spectrometers: rugged monolithic wide-field imaging tunable filters, Michelsons, and spatial heterodyne spectrometers for atmospheric and ground-based applications. Performance and resource estimates are provided for each system concept.
