Abstract
The objective of the proposed work is to develop a hyperspectral sensor system in the 8 to 14 micron wavelength region (long wave infrared or LWIR) capable of detecting chemical agents of DoD and civil interest via spectral measurements at 4 wavenumber resolution. The technology is an evolution of a LWIR hyperspectral technology patented by the University of Hawaii and licensed to Spectrum Photonics based on a static (no moving parts) interferometer and uncooled microbolometer detector technology. Two sensors have been developed and demonstrated in airborne and ground-based IED and landmine detection experiments. The technical innovation in this project will be to increase the spectral resolution of the sensor to 4 wavenumbers from the current 20 wavenumbers and miniaturize the data processing hardware.
