Paper Abstract

A second-generation long-wave hyperspectral imager based on micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) technology is in development. Spectral and spatial encoding using a MEMS digital micro-mirror device enables fast, multiplexed data acquisition with arbitrary spectral response functions. The imager may be programmed to acquire spectrally selective contrast imagery, replacing more time-consuming hyperspectral data collection. A single-element detector collects encoded data and embedded real-time hardware generates imagery. An internal scanning mechanism enables rapid retrieval of full hyperspectral imagery. The resulting rugged, low-cost sensor will provide chemically specific imagery for applications in gaseous and surface contaminant detection, surveillance, remote sensing, and process control.
