Paper Abstract

ABB Bomem is expanding its line of infrared remote sensing products with the addition of a new multipixel imaging spectroradiometer. This hyperspectral instrument is based on the proven MR spectroradiometers. The instrument is modular and support several configurations. One of its configurations is optimised for differential acquisition in the VLWIR (cut-off near 14 μm) to support research related to the stand-off detection and quantification of chemicals. In that configuration, the instrument is equipped with a dualinput telescope to perform optical background subtraction. The resulting signal is the differential between the spectral radiance entering each input port.
