Abstract
The Spaceborne Infrared Atmospheric Sounder (SIRAS) represents a new approach to imaging spectrometry in the infrared by combining next generation WFOV refractive optics with high-dispersion gratings to minimize size and mass. Prototype hardware was developed and tested on this program to demonstrate that high spectral resolution could be achieved in a package of small size and mass. The performance, development and testing of the prototype spectrometer are discussed as well as potential applications for future missions. This effort was sponsored under the NASA Instrument Incubator Program (IIP).
