13 November 1996 Measured performance of an airborne Fourier-transform hyperspectral imager
Author Affiliations +
A new hyperspectral imager has recently been developed by Kestrel Corporation for use in light aircraft platforms. The instrument provides 256 spectral channels with 87 cm-1 spectral bandwidth over the 450 nm to 1000 nm portion of the spectrum. Operated as a pushbroom imager, the FTVHSI has been shown to have a IFOV of 0.75 mrad, and a FOV of 0.23 rad. The sensor includes an internal spectral/radiometric calibration source, a self contained spectrally resolved downwelling sensor, and complete line of sight and GPS positioning information. The instrument is now operating from a Cessna TU-206 single engine aircraft.
