Paper Abstract

The spectrally agile staring sensor (SASS) is an instrument system that is able to get image and spectrum information. This paper analyzes the expression of signal-to-noise ratio and overall performance of the SASS system that uses an acousto-optic tunable filter as its spectral filter, and points out improving methods and limiting factors of the system performance. The complete SASS system experimental set-up is constructed. Using this set-up, the theory is verified, and the image and spectrum information of the simulated target is acquired.
