Paper Abstract

A unique, hyperspectral imaging plane "on-a-chip" developed for deployment as a High Performance Payload (HPP) on a micro or small unmanned aerial vehicle is described. HPP employs nanophotonics technologies to create a focal plane array with very high fill factor fabricated using standard integrated circuit techniques. The spectral response of each pixel can be independently tuned and controlled over the entire spectral range of the camera. While the current HPP is designed to operate in the visible, the underlying physical principles of the device are applicable and potentially implementable from the UV through the long-wave infrared.
