Paper Abstract

Many of the thermal imaging systems used by the Department of Defense for battlefield surveillance, fire control, and target acquisition are constructed using standardized "Common Module" components. This paper describes a method of modifying a Common Module thermal imaging system such that it can also be used as a spectrometer for 7.5 to 11.5 micrometer radiation. A discussion of the spectrometer spectral filter, optics, electronics, sensitivity, and resolution is included. Example spectra taken in the laboratory and in the field are given along with a description of the digital technique used to identify spectra collected with the instrument.
