Paper Abstract

The Tropospheric Trace Species Sensing Fabry-Perot Interferometer (TTSS-FPI) was a NASA Instrument Incubator Program (IIP) project for risk mitigation of enabling concepts and technology applicable to future NASA Science Mission Directorate atmospheric chemistry measurements. Within IIP an airborne sensor was developed and laboratory-tested to demonstrate the instrument concept and enabling technologies that are also applicable to the desired geostationary-based implementation. The concept is centered about an imaging Fabry-Perot interferometer (FPI) observing a narrow spectral interval within the strong 9.6 micron ozone infrared band with a spectral resolution ~0.07 cm-1, and also has applicability to and could simplify designs associated with sensors targeting measurement of other trace species. Results of testing and characterization of enabling subsystems and the overall instrument system are reported; emphasis is placed on recent laboratory testing performed to evaluate system-level radiometric, spatial, and spectral measurement fidelity.
