Abstract
Hyperspectral sensors have demonstrated the ability to provide remote sensing utility and actionable information to the warfighter. Currently deployed airborne hyperspectral platforms feature near real-time processing to generate detection products in minutes. Extending this functionality to the ground-to-ground (G2G) scenario however presents a different set of challenges including the lack of a steady forward motion for pushbroom type scanning, a highly variable vibration environment, different SWAP-C (size, weight, power, & cost) trades, and the need for the generation of multiple processed data cubes per second with result products displayed in near real time. The proposed project team will explore the design and development of new system capabilities configured to meet the sponsors target objectives for a compact, full-framing HIS sensor for on-the-move ground-to-ground applications.
