Spectral radiometers and imaging radiometers have been used for decades to provide detailed information about the infrared properties of remote objects. Both of these senors provide complementary information. Even more information can be obtained using a fusion of these two instruments. A spectral imaging radiometer provides data absolutely registered in the spatial, spectral and temporal domain. In this paper we present SARIS, a new spectral imaging radiometer that will operate both from airborne and ground-based platform. SARIS will provide high speed, highly accurate, 16 X 16 spatial radiometric measurements with 1 cm-1 spectral resolution in the 2 to 5 micrometer spectral band. SARIS will measure up to 150 datacubes (a datacube is a complete spatial/spectral measurement) at a spectral resolution of 8 cm-1 and covering the spectral range from 3.5 to 5 micrometer. In this paper we present the mission, technical requirements and conceptual design of SARIS.
