Abstract

The proposed system will be useful for a wide range of DOE missions including comprehensive test ban treaty (CBTB) verification. One of the guiding principles for an inspection is that it be effective, minimally intrusive, timely, and cost-effective. The HyWAI addresses this problem by providing a high performance, airborne, wide field of view, full spectrum hyper spectral imager in a relatively small package. The wide field of view results in a very efficient airborne mapping operation (the system covers a lot of ground in a single pass). Commercial Applications and Other Benefits There are a wide variety of applications for full spectrum hyper spectral imagers including oil spill mapping, mapping of coral reef health, and a detection of improvised explosive devices (IEDs).
