Paper Abstract

The microbolometer spectrometer breadboard MIBS is a prism spectrometer that uses an uncooled microbolometer detector array and has been designed for the ESA EarthCARE mission. In order to demonstrate its feasibility a breadboard has been build, and tests have been performed that show good correlation between predicted and achieved results. Although application for EarthCARE has become uncertain due to geodistribution issues, it is feld that this instrument (which is small enough to give grown up performance to a micro satellite) has a lot of application potential for applications like weather forecasting and forest fire detection. The presentation will elaborate on performance predicted, measurements performed, results achieved and future applications.
