Paper Abstract

MR-i is an imaging version of the ABB MR series Fourier-Transform spectroradiometer. This field instrument generates spectral datacubes in the MWIR and LWIR. It is designed to acquire the spectral signatures of rapidly evolving events. The MR-i is modular and can be configured in different ways. One of its configurations is optimized for passive standoff measurements of gases in differential mode. In this mode, the instrument is equipped with a dual-input telescope to perform optical background subtraction. The resulting signal is the differential between the spectral radiance entering each input port. With that method, the signal from the background is automatically removed from the signal of the target of interest. The spectral range of this configuration extends in the VLWIR (cut-off near 14 μm) to take full advantage of the LW atmospheric window.
