The concept of the Imaging Spectrometer is becoming established as a major new thrust in remote sensing of the Earth. JPL is currently operating the Airborne Imaging Spectrometer on a NASA C-130 which has demonstrated the direct identification of surface materials using Imaging Spectrometry. An advanced aircraft instrument, the Airborne Visible/Infrared Imaging Spectrometer (AVIRIS), is currently under development, and will begin operation on a NASA U-2 in 1986. The next step will be the Shuttle Imaging Spectrometer (SISEX) currently planned for a 1990 flight. This paper will describe the current state of development of SISEX, including the development of a modular concept which will allow major elements of SISEX to be used on NASA's Space platform, the Earth Observing System. This modular approach is expected to result in a substantial overall cost saving.
