27 April 2009 Sensor modeling and demonstration of a multi-object spectrometer for performance-driven sensing

A novel multi-object spectrometer (MOS) is being explored for use as an adaptive performance-driven sensor that tracks moving targets. Developed originally for astronomical applications, the instrument utilizes an array of micromirrors to reflect light to a panchromatic imaging array. When an object of interest is detected the individual micromirrors imaging the object are tilted to reflect the light to a spectrometer to collect a full spectrum. This paper will present example sensor performance from empirical data collected in laboratory experiments, as well as our approach in designing optical and radiometric models of the MOS channels and the micromirror array. Simulation of moving vehicles in a highfidelity, hyperspectral scene is used to generate a dynamic video input for the adaptive sensor. Performance-driven algorithms for feature-aided target tracking and modality selection exploit multiple electromagnetic observables to track moving vehicle targets.
