Abstract
THIS PROPOSAL RESPONDS TO TECHNICAL SUBTOPIC 08.27: MULTI-CHANNEL INFRARED SPECTROMETER, WHICH REQUESTED A SPECTROMETER BE DEVELOPED CAPABLE OF SAMPLING SIMULTANEOUSLYTHE SPECTRAL RANGE 1.0 TO 2.5 AT 1% RESOLUTION WITH A NEP OF 10-16 W/HZ. THE OPPORTUNITY IS TO APPLY NEW IR ARRAY DETECTORS AND OPTICAL DESIGNS TO MEET AND EXCEED THESE SPECIFICATIONS, AND PERHAPS TO DEVELOP A TRULY IMAGINGSPECTROMETER AS OPPOSED TO A SIMPLE POINT SPECTROMETER. FURTHER, NEW IMAGE, SPECTRUM AND IMAGE CUBE DATA PROCESSING SYSTEMS CAN BE ADAPTED TO GIVE REALTIME DATA ANALYSIS DURING MEASUREMENT. SETS, INC., PERSONNEL HAVE HELPED DEVELOP SOME OF THE NEW TECHNOLOGIES TO BE APPLIED HERE. THE OBJECTIVE OF PHASE 1 IS TO DEVELOP A DETAILED CONCEPTUALDESIGN AND SHOW FEASIBILITY FOR DEVLOPMENT AND TESTING OF AN OPERATING PROTOTYPE INSTRUMENT UNDER PHASE II. THE PHASEI EFFORT WOULD BE CARRIED OUT BY A HIGHLY KNOWLEDGEABLE TECHNICAL STAFF, ONE FOR EACH OF THE AREAS: FOCAL PLANE INCLUDING DETECTORS; OPTICS; MECHANICAL ENGINEERING, COOLINGAND PACKAGING; INSTRUMENT CONTROL AND SIGNAL PROCESSING ELECTRONICS; MICRO COMPUTER SYSTEM; AND INSTRUMENT CONTROL AND DATA ANALYSIS SOFTWARE.
