Low Cost LWIR Interferometric HSI System
Agency / Branch:
DOD / CBD
Due to the potential detection benefits offered by hyperspectral imaging spectroscopy, this is an area of great interest in terms of early detection of plume threats. The major constraint is in costs of components. Under this SBIR, our team will investigate innovative advances in the integration of uncooled microbolometer technologies to determine the potential for reducing detector cost and complexity for this application. The objective of the proposed work is to develop a hyperspectral sensor system in the 8 to 14 micron wavelength region (long wave infrared or LWIR) capable of detecting chemical agents of DoD and civil interest via spectral measurements a spectral resolution as high as 4 cm-1.
