abstract

Using a new microsat called MightySat II as a platform, Kestrel Corporation is designing and building the first Fourier transform hyperspectral imager (FTHSI) to be operated from a spacecraft. This payload will also be the first to fly on the Phillips Laboratory MightySat II spacecraft series, a new, innovative approach, to affordable space testing of high risk, high payoff technologies. Performance enhancements offered by the Fourier transform approach have shown it to be one of the more promising spaceborne hyperspectral concepts. Simulations of the payload's performance have shown that the instrument is capable of separating a wide range of subtle spectral differences. Variations in the return from the Georges Bank and shoals are discernible and various types of coastal grasses (sea oats and spartina) can be isolated against a sand background.
