23 September 2009 A new imaging FTIR spectroradiometer
Author Affiliations +
ABB Bomem is expanding its line of infrared remote sensing products with the addition of a new imaging spectroradiometer. That hyperspectral instrument is based on the proven MR FTIR spectroradiometers. This field instrument, called the MR-i, is a fast imaging Fourier Transform spectroradiometer. It generates spectral data cubes in the MWIR and LWIR. It is designed to be sufficiently fast to acquire the spectral signatures of rapid events. The design is modular. The two output ports of the instrument can be populated with different combinations of detectors (imaging or not). For instance to measure over a broad spectral range, one output port can be equipped with a LWIR camera while the other port is equipped with a MWIR camera. No dichroics are used to split the bands, hence enhancing the sensitivity. Both ports can be equipped with cameras serving the same spectral range but set at different sensitivity levels in order to increase the measurement dynamic range and avoid saturation of bright parts of the scene while simultaneously obtaining good measurement of the faintest parts of the scene. Various telescope options are available for the input port. This is a presentation of the current state of the development.
