This paper describes a ground-based testbed being developed by Raytheon Santa Barbara Remote Sensing for evaluating suitability of new Fourier transform spectrometer technology in future environmental satellite missions. The testbed includes a passively-aligned, double-pass cube corner Michelson interferometer that has flexibility to simulate a wide range of possible missions, including moderate spectral resolution imaging, trace chemical detection, and atmospheric sounding. Early testbed results are presented along with initial operational instruments performance assessments that are derived from testbed measurements.
