Overarching objective: Research, design and develop a prototype of a new type of high-throughput, multi-octave imaging spectrometer that uses JPL unique capabilities.
This is a three year effort with the first year devoted to assessing and selecting the optimal approach to deliver a new high-throughput, multi-octave imaging spectrometer design architecture with laboratory demonstration. At this time the initial technical approach is to explore use an innovative tuned-prism based imaging spectrometer design. The concept is a Dyson imaging spectrometer with a tuned-prism as the dispersing element rather than a grating. This plausible, but very challenging architecture would be original. The effort will work to incorporate NASA unique and advanced technology including cryocoolers and detector arrays. The multi-octave design will be compatible with the VSWIR 380 to 2500 nm range (~ 2.5 octaves) and the MLWIR range 2.5 to 15 microns (~ 2.5 octaves).More »
