Paper Abstract

We present instrument concepts for in-situ reflectance spectroscopy over a spatial resolution range from several meters to tens of μm. These have been adapted to the low mass and power requirements of rover or similar platforms. Described are a miniaturized imaging spectrometer for rover mast, a combined mast and arm point spectrometer, and an imaging microspectrometer for the rover arm.
