7 January 2004 Mini-SMIFTS: an uncooled LWIR hyperspectral sensor
Author Affiliations +
A long-wave infrared hyperspectral sensor using an interferometer and an uncooled microbolometer array camera was built and tested. The sensor showed signal to noise ratios near 200 for ambient temperature scenes with 33 wavenumber resolution at a frame rate of 50 Hz. Straightforward performance improvements in optics and reported detector performances suggest signal to noise ratios near 1000 at 10 wavenumber resolution should be achievable.
