Paper Abstract

In this paper we present (1) the optical system design and operational overview, (2) laboratory evaluation spectra, and (3) a sample of the first observational data taken with HYSAT. The hyperspectral sensor systems which are being developed and whose utility is being pioneered by the Phillips Laboratory are applicable to several important SOI (space object identification), military, and civil applications including (1) spectral signature simulations, satellite model validation, and satellite database observations and (3) simultaneous spatial/spectral observations of booster plumes for strategic and surrogate tactical missile signature identification. The sensor system is also applicable to a wide range of other applications, including astronomy, camouflage discrimination, smoke chemical analysis, environmental/agricultural resource sensing, terrain analysis, and ground surveillance. Only SOI applications will be discussed here.
