13 November 1996 Airborne visible hyperspectral imaging spectrometer: optical and system-level description
Author Affiliations +
During the past year, Kestrel Corporation has designed and built a low cost Fourier transform hyperspectral imager for deployment in a light aircraft. The instrument is a pushbroom imaging spectrometer employing a Sagnac interferometer. The instrument operates over a range of 350- 1050 nm with 256 spectral channels, and a 13 degree FOV with an 0.8 mrad IFOV. Installed with the optical instrument are attitude sensors, a scene camera, a downwelling sensor and in-flight calibration equipment. This paper will focus on the description of both the optical system and the support equipment used in this revolutionary instrument.
