Kestrel Corporation has designed and is now building a dual- band infrared Fourier transform ultraspectral imager for aircraft deployment. Designed for installation in a Cessna 206, this instrument will have a 15 degree FOV, with an IFOV of 1.0 mrad. The target spectral resolution is better than 1.5 cm-1 over 2000 to 3000 cm-1 and 0.4 cm-1 over 850 to 1250 cm(superscript -1$. using 512 spectral channels. The device will use a variety of spectral enhancement techniques to achieve this unprecedented spectral resolution. Computer simulations of the optical systems demonstrates sub-wavenumber resolutions and signal to noise ratios of over 900.
