Portable Remote Imaging Spectrometer (PRISM)

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Develop an UV-NIR (350nm to 1050 nm) portable remote imaging spectrometer (PRISM) for flight on a variety of airborne platforms with high SNR and response uniformity optimized for coastal ocean science:
Unprecedented sensitivity for assessing the large dynamic range in observed coastal reflectance at ~3 nm spectral resolution
Provide performance exceeding the state-of-the-art in light throughput, spectral and spatial uniformity, and polarization insensitivity by factors of 2-10, while extending the spectral range into ultraviolet
Provide a two-channel SWIR (1240 nm and 1640 nm) radiometer to facilitate application of the atmospheric correction algorithm
