Paper Abstract

We describe a fast, uniform, low-polarization imaging spectrometer and telescope system that can be integrated in a 6U CubeSat. The spectral range is 350-1700 nm, with 5.7 nm sampling. The telescope and spectrometer operate at F/1.8. At 100 mm focal length, the telescope is the highest resolution form that can fit in the CubeSat frame without deployable mirrors. The field of view is 10° with 600 cross-track pixels. The spectrometer is designed for the new Teledyne CHROMA detector array with 30μm pixel size for maximizing throughput. The primary intended applications are coastal ocean and snow cover monitoring.
