Paper Abstract

We report results of experimentation with a MWIR non-scanning, high speed imaging spectrometer capable of simultaneously recording spatial and spectral data from a rapidly varying target scene. High speed spectral imaging was demonstrated by collecting spectral and spatial snapshots of filtered blackbodies, combustion products and a coffee cup. The instrument is based on computed tomography concepts and operates in a mid-wave infrared band of 3.0 to 4.6 micrometer. Raw images were recorded at a video frame rate of 30 fps using a 160 X 120 InSb focal plane array. Reconstructions of simple objects are presented.
