Paper Abstract

The Geosynchronous Imaging Fourier Transform Spectrometer (GIFTS) instrument is a hyperspectral sounder slated to undergo thermal vacuum testing within a year. The University of Wisconsin - Madison is authoring a software suite to answer the requirement of testing the conversion of raw interferogram images into calibrated high-resolution spectra. The software consists of algorithm components that assemble into a processing pipeline as well as a testing harness utilizing a lightweight scripting language. The processing requirements for an imaging FTS are considerable, and necessitate an understanding of maximum achievable accuracy as well as exploration of tradeoffs in the interest of processing efficiency. We present an overview of the design of this testing software.
