Abstract
The 7V and 10V space chambers at Arnold Air Force Base are deep space environment simulators developed to test high performance interceptors and surveillance sensors in deep space conditions (20K background temperature).The chambers operate over the visible to Long Wave Infrared portions of the spectra.The proposed spectrometer will be designed for integration into either space chamber to assist in calibration/test of the collimator/source array and to test the resistive source array, point sources, flood sources and monochromator source.The proposed spectrometer design provides for both 1D spatial information and spectral information between the wavelengths 2 and 12 microns.The spectrometer is small and lightweight, and has the potential to mature into a field portable ruggedized sensor.The design uses current state-of-the-art commercially available components.
