Design of the compact high-resolution imaging spectrometer (CHRIS), and future developments
Author(s): Mike Cutter; Dan Lobb

Paper Abstract

The CHRIS instrument was launched on ESA’s PROBA platform in October 2001, and is providing hyperspectral images of selected ground areas at 17m ground sampling distance, in the spectral range 415nm to 1050nm. Platform agility allows image sets to be taken at multiple view angles in each overpass. The design of the instrument is briefly outlined, including design of optics, structures, detection and in-flight calibration system. Lessons learnt from construction and operation of the experimental system, and possible design directions for future hyperspectral systems, are discussed.
