Abstract/Description:
The High Efficiency HyperSpectral Imager (HEHSI) is a Fourier Transform hyperspectral imager based on a Sagnac interferometer. This thesis research concentrates on the design upgrade and calibration of HEHSI from a proof of concept instrument to a prototype field instrument. Stability is enhanced by removing degrees of freedom and alignment is enhanced by providing for in-situ adjustments. The use of off the shelf components allows for reduced development time and cost constraints. HEHSI is capable of multiple configurations to accommodate sensors and optics with specialized capabilities for multiple wavelength ranges and viewing conditions. With a spectral response of 400 to 1000 nanometers in the visible and very near IR as well as 900 to 1700nm in the Near IR. Creation and use of a real time feedback alignment utility allow quantifiable signal comparison and image alignment. Advances allow for HEHSI to remain aligned during data collection sessions and confirmation of alignment through quantitative measures.
