Abstract
A system was developed to acquire and analyze the rocket plume in the visible and near-infrared bands. The system is designed to be deployed on the field were live rocket firing take place. It is composed of three spectrometers covering the spectrum from 400 nm to 1700 nm, a pair of fast detectors giving the temporal signature at a chosen wavelength band and a pair of CMOS cameras that capture the two-dimensional intensity map of the plume rocket. A detailed description of the instruments that composed the system is described. Results and possible improvement are also presented.
