Wedge Imaging Spectrometer (WIS) technology promises advantages in lower size, cost, and sensor complexity but requires consideration of the effects of non-simultaneous collection of spectral information. Space applications appear particularly matched to the characteristics of this technology. Examples of WIS imagery collected by airborne acquisition systems have been used to assess the utility of WIS space imagery. Recent hardware development efforts have produced sensor components amenable to hyperspectral space applications in the Visible-Near-Infrared, Short Wavelength Infrared, Short-Mid Wavelength Infrared, and Long Wavelength Infrared bands. These components demonstrate excellent performance and provide the basis for space instrument concepts that utilize the inherent simplicity, compactness, and economy of the wedge spectrometer technology.
