Abstract

Hyperspectral imagery (HSI) has largely been developed to monitor static scenes or slowly changing events. To provide an additional responsive space-based capability, a novel spectrometer that can characterize highly-transient events is proposed. Chromotomography (CT) is a technology that enables HSI to detect and classify fast transient combustion events. An experimental space-based CT imager is currently being constructed at the Air Force Institute of Technology (AFIT). The space-based CT imager is being designed as a small payload that will operate from the Exposed Facility (EF) of the Japanese Experimental Module (JEM) on the International Space Station (ISS). The collected data from the space-based experimental payload will validate the science of CT and demonstrate the multifunctional applications of the instrument.

A Design Overview of a Space-Based Chromotomographic Hyperspectral Imaging Experiment
