8 May 2018 High areal rate longwave-infrared hyperspectral imaging for environmental remote sensing
Author Affiliations +
The Mako airborne longwave-infrared hyperspectral sensor is a whiskbroom imager operating in the 7.6-13.2 μm region with 44-nm spectral sampling and <30 mK noise-equivalent differential temperature (NEDT). It has undergone progressive development since its inaugural flights in 2010 and is capable of acquiring 112° swaths with an areal rate of 33 km2 min-1 at 2-m ground sampling distance. The sensor performance envelope allows for a number of operational modes that can be deployed against a variety of acquisition scenarios. Its suitability for environmental remote sensing applications is illustrated with reference to a number of representative case studies drawn from several years of airborne collections within the Los Angeles Basin and beyond.
