An all- electronic scanning spectrometer is described which is capable of scanning the 0.6 to 1 u spectral region at scan rates of up to 10,200 scans /second at a resolution of better than 15 $. An image dissector photoelectron multiplier tube is used as the detection device. The minimum detectable signal of the system is Zess than 1 x 10 -E w cm-2 2-1 at 0.8 u. The instrument occupies a volume of less than half a cubic foot and is designed for operation in a KC -135 aircraft. Video magnetic tape recording is used, and a digital read -out method has been developed so that the data can be programmed into a computer.
