Potential NASA Commercial Applications: The wide-area, deep UV Raman hyperspectral imaging system holds great potential for many NASA applications. The proposed system specifically addresses NASA's Science Instruments, Observatories, and Sensor Systems Roadmap Technology Area 8, which stated the need for in situ sensors. The proposed system could offer in situ molecular analysis without damaging the sample, allowing for multiple measurements to be made. In addition, the roadmap states an on-going need for spectroscopy technologies for various missions to support astrophysics technology needs. The field with the most benefit for this technology will be planetary science technology, with upcoming missions that aim to characterize the surface and environments of various planetary bodies. These missions are looking for systems that can provide mineralogical analysis (188.8.131.52) and biomarker detection (184.108.40.206), which the proposed system can provide. Section 220.127.116.11 also states the need for advanced spectrometers with a focus on miniaturization. This is another feature that the proposed system can meet, since the SHS can be quite small, which was demonstrated on STS-1122. The proposed system can also be complimentary to laser induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS- ChemCam instrument), since the Raman system provides information on molecular bonding while LIBS provides elemental composition.
