Feasibility study of a thermal spectro-imager for space missions to small bodies

Paper Abstract

In this paper, we report on an on-going feasibility study of a thermal spectro-imager for future space missions to small bodies in the Solar System. Thanks to the recent development of uncooled micro-bolometer technology, we decided to use such a detector as a baseline for our study. For this feasibility study, we have defined four objectives using this detector to perform : (i) uncalibrated images, (ii) calibrated radiometric images, (iii) spectroscopic measurements, and (iv) a definition of the instrumental concept including the optical and mechanical design. Here we present our progress on the first two objectives of this work.
