Paper Abstract

We report progress on a high-performance, long-wavelength infrared hyperspectral imaging system for airborne research. Based on a f/1.25 Dyson spectrometer and 128x128 arsenic doped silicon blocked impurity band array, this system has significantly higher throughput than previous sensors. An agile pointing/scanning capability permits the additional signal to be allocated between increased signal-to-noise and broader area coverage, creating new opportunities to explore LWIR hyperspectral phenomenology.
