A single pixel image sensor that can operate in visible wavelength had been prototyped in FY12. We proposed to extend the current lab setup to operate in the infrared domain with hyperspectral resolution. This effort will allow better usage of the communication bandwidth, higher resolution of image data and significant reduction to the design cost.
This is a drastic enhancement to the current prototype which only allows us to collect visible light and reconstruct a single wavelength image. This approach is a high risk, potentially high-payoff method to address the problem of data volume transmission to Earth resulting from high-resolution hyperspectral imaging.More »
