Paper Abstract

Thermal infrared Pushbroom scanners being developed for NASA's earth resources survey experiments in the middle to late 1980's offer high spectral, spatial and temporal resolution, and high reliability through design simplicity. This mode of operation does not require moving optics; has integral chopping and calibration, and consequently, the Pushbroom scanner is lighter, simpler and more compact than its electromechanical predecessors. This paper describes the development of a 90 linear element, 8-14 micrometer, photoconductive (PC) (Hg,Cd)Te, IR/CCD/MUX Pushbroom Field Test Instrument.
