Based on the CONOPS for gas plume detection, and the performance constraints of uncooled cameras, we propose to develop a dispersive scanning spectrometer, based on OKSI’s HyperScan and HyperSWIR family of scanning sensors. Not all uncooled cameras are equal, and not all exhibit the required characteristics for operating in spectral imaging systems under low flux environment. OKSI proposes to analyze the characteristics of multiple uncooled camera products and consolidate winning attributes into a single product that is specifically optimized for a personnel protection imaging spectrometer system. The proposal also discusses uncooled sensor designs and points out the various camera features appropriate for the low radiative flux environment. An approach to develop an uncooled camera that is specifically optimized for spectral imaging is set forth.
