A snapshot imaging spectrometer known as the Computed Tomography Imaging Spectrometer CTIS, operating at 15 frames per second, measured the PAC III intercept of a Hera at White Sands Missile Range WSMR on March 31, 2001. As in computed tomography, the collected data must be processed to produce the spectral images. A technical report describes the collection technique, the reconstruction techniques, and the resulting spectral images. A paper emphasizing the hyperspectral aspect of CTIS was written and presented. A paper emphasizing the insight gained about the intercept from the CTIS instrument was written and presented. The reconstructed data was submitted in computer-readable form to the sponsoring agency, Space and Missile Defense Command, SMDC-TSC.
