Abstract:

An airborne hyperspectral imaging system named SYSIPHE is currently being developed by ONERA, France, under the contracting authority of the French MoD. This system will be dedicated to making absolute measurements of spectral radiances and emissivities of various ground scenes, in order to create an important ground hyperspectral data base. All the data collected will in turn be used in several defense applications. The measurement part of SYSIPHE will be composed of two optical instruments, together integrated into a DO-228 plane held by the German DLR. One of the instruments is working in the visible, near infrared and short wave infrared SWIR domains. It is named HySpex2 and is being developed by NEO and FFI, Norway. SIELETERS, being developed by ONERA, is the second one and is working in the medium wave infrared MWIR and long wave infrared LWIR domains. SIELETERS and HySpex2 will be integrated simultaneously above the plane hatch.
