Paper Abstract

In recent years, a new class of instrument has been emerging for Earth and planetary remote sensing applications.1,2 Most often referred to as imaging spectrometers, or sometimes mapping spectrometers, these new instruments are of increasing interest because of their capability to perform direct identification of surface materials through their spectral signatures. This paper describes some of the system design and technology tradeoffs associated with the development of such instruments and gives design examples for both Earth and planetary applications.
