Abstract
In the past 3 years, US Army’s Night Vision and Electronic Sensors Directorate has worked in conjunction with Navy SPAWAR on DARPA's Adaptive Spectral Reconnaissance Program (ASRP). The Night Vision Imaging Spectrometer (NVIS), which is a solar reflective (0.4-2.35um) hyperspectral imaging device, has played a major role in the ASR Program. As with all spectral imaging devices, there exist a certain number of imperfections in the NVIS device. If not handled properly, these imperfections can have an impact upon the performance of certain detection algorithms. This paper will describe the overall measured sensor performance parameters of the NVIS, its imperfections and the effect they may have on algorithm performance. There will also be a discussion concerning the processing tools and methods that have been developed in the past year, and have allowed the imperfections to be removed to some level.
