We present the implementation of snapshot imaging spectropolarimetry in a short-wave infrared (SWIR) system. It is the first of its kind to provide imaging spectropolarimetry with no moving parts and snapshot capability. This has applications in many fields, such as mining, biomedical imaging, and astronomy. The SWIR Computed Tomographic Imaging Channeled Spectropolarimeter (CTICS) is a snapshot imaging spectropolarimeter with 54X46 pixel spatial resolution and 10-band spectral resolution from 1.25-1.99 μm for the purpose of object identification. First, we present the design of the two main parts: the Computed Tomography Imaging Spectrometer (CTIS) and the channeled spectropolarimetry components. A discussion follows on the reconstruction technique. We then present the final assembled system and testing results.
