Research Institution
The objective of this proposal is to describe the design and technique behind a novel framing 2-dimensional (2-D) hyperspectral imager system that overcomes the limitations of traditional hyperspectral systems when tracking high speed targets and is capable of placing a 2-dimensional spatial grid on the target with enough pixels for shape-based target detection, while simultaneously and instantaneously collecting a full spectral signature for each image element. The combined collection of spectral and 2-D spatial data enables the system to stay"locked-on"the target, providing a real on-the-move capability. The proposed solution is applicable to all imaging bands [e.g., Ultraviolet (UV), Visible/Near Infrared (VIS/NIR), Shortwave Infrared (SWIR), Midwave Infrared (MWIR), Longwave Infrared (LWIR)].
