Paper Abstract

Short wave infrared (SWIR) sensors are becoming more common in DoD imaging systems because of their haze penetration capabilities and spectral properties of materials in this waveband. Typical SWIR systems have provided either full motion video (FMV) with framing panchromatic systems or multi-spectral or hyperspectral imagery with line-scanning systems. The system described here bridges these modalities, providing FMV with nine discrete spectral bands. Nine pixel sized SWIR filters are arranged in a repeating 3x3 pattern and mounted on top of a COTS, 2D staring focal plane array (FPA). We characterize the spectral response of the filter and integrated sensor. Spot-scan measurements and data collected with this camera using narrow band sources reveals crosstalk induced nonlinearity in the sensor response. We demonstrate a simple approach to reduce the impact of this nonlinearity on collected imagery.
