This paper presents the design and performance of a multispectral, high-speed, low-cost device. It is composed of six separate single element detectors covering the spectral range from UV to MWIR. Due to the wide spectral ranges of the detectors, these are used in conjunction with spectral filters. The device is a tool to spectrally and temporally resolve large field of view angularly integrated signatures from very fast events and get a total amplitude measure. One application has been to determine the maximal amplitude signal in muzzle flashes. Since the pulse width of a muzzle flash is on the order of 1 ms, a sensor with a bandwidth significantly higher than 1000 Hz is needed to resolve the flash. Examples from experimental trials are given.
