There is increasing interest in imaging spectrometers working in the SWIR and LWIR wavelength bands. Commercially available detectors are not only expensive, but have a limited number of pixels, compared with visible band detectors. Typical push broom hyperspectral imaging systems consist of a fore optic imager, a slit, a line spectrometer, and a two dimensional focal plane with a spatial and spectral direction. To improve the spatial field coverage at a particular resolution, multiple systems are incorporated, where the "linear fields of view" of the systems are aligned end to end. This solution is prohibitive for many applications due to the costs of the multiple detectors, coolers, spectrometers, or the space, weight, or power constraints. Corning will present a cost effective solution utilizing existing detectors combined with innovative design and manufacturing techniques.
