Paper Abstract

The Dyson spectrometer form is capable of providing high throughput, excellent image quality, low spatial and spectral distortions, and high tolerance to fabrication and alignment errors in a compact format with modest demands for weight, volume, and cooling resources. These characteristics make it attractive for hyperspectral imaging from a space-based platform. After a brief discussion of history and basic principles, we present two examples of Dyson spectrometers being developed for airborne applications. We conclude with a concept for an earth science instrument soon to begin development under the Instrument Incubator Program of NASA's Earth Science Technology Office.
