29 June 1992 Special sensor ultraviolet spectrographic imager: an instrument description
Author Affiliations +
We describe the Special Sensor Ultraviolet Spectrographic Imager (SSUSI). This instrument consists of a scanning imaging spectrograph (SIS) whose field-of-view is scanned from horizon to horizon and a nadir-looking photometer system (NPS). The SIS produces simultaneous multispectral images over the spectral range 1 150 to 1800A. The NPS consists of three photometers with filters designed to monitor the airglow at 4278A and 6300A and the terrestrial albedo near 6300A. SSUSI will fly on the DMSP Block 5D3 satellites S-16 thru S-19. The instruments will be calibrated at the Applied Physics Laboratory's Optical Calibration Facility.
