Paper Abstract

The Airborne Imaging Spectrometer (AIS) is a multispectral infrared imaging instrument utilizing a 32- x 32-element mercury-cadmium-telluride detector array to achieve high spatial resolution. A novel optical design provides high spectral resolution, and, in conjunction with the 32-element spatial resolution, makes optimal use of the capabilities of the area array. The experiment requirements and the details of instrument design, implementation, and calibration are presented. The superior resolution, accuracy, and data acquisition rate of this sensor/instrument concept for reconnaissance and geophysical survey is detailed and plans for upgrading/improving the instrument and future applications of this design concept are discussed.
