Paper Abstract

Los Alamos is currently working toward demonstrating Cubesat-based hyperspectral detection of gas-phase chemical plumes, a goal initially pursued in the internally funded Targeted Atmospheric Chemistry Observations from Space (TACOS) project, and now advancing toward space deployment with the NASA-funded Nanosat Atmospheric Chemistry Hyperspectral Observation System (NACHOS). This paper will present a general overview of these projects. Bandwidth considerations prevent full datacube downloads, and so processing algorithms include an on-board processing component to provide matched-filter and RX images for the gases of interest. The downlinked data will additionally include the full spectrum for a small sample of pixels, and one of the challenges for ground-based analysis will be to incorporate these different but incomplete "views" of the datacube into a more physical interpretation/analysis of the downlinked data.
