Panchromatic Fourier Transform Spectrometer (PanFTS) is an Instrument Incubator Program (IIP) funded development to build and demonstrate a single instrument capable of meeting or exceeding the requirements of the Geostationary Coastal and Air Pollution Events (GEO-CAPE) mission. The PanFTS design provides atmospheric measurement capabilities in the IR and(More)
The Xilinx Virtex-5QV FPGA is a new radiation-hardened-by-design (RHBD) part that is targeted as the spaceborne processor for the Decadal Survey Aerosol-Cloud-Ecosystem (ACE) mission's Multiangle SpectroPolarimetric Imager (MSPI) instrument<sup>12</sup>. A key technology development needed for MSPI is on-board processing (OBP) to calculate polarimetry data(More)
The MATMOS Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) spectrometer is a concept instrument designed to measure the Mars atmospheric composition using solar occultation from orbit. MATMOS requires high sampling rate (up to 300 kHz), high dynamic range (up to 22 bits) data acquisition to record time-domain interferograms which get converted to spectra on-board the(More)
The Geostationary Fourier Transform Spectrometer (GeoFTS) is an imaging spectrometer designed for an earth science mission to measure key atmospheric trace gases and process tracers related to climate change and human activity. The GeoFTS instrument is a half meter cube size instrument designed to operate in geostationary orbit as a secondary(More)
ISAAC is a highly capable, highly reusable, modular, and integrated FPGA-based common instrument control and computing platform for a wide range of instrument needs as defined in the Earth Science National Research Council (NRC) Decadal Survey Report. This paper presents its motivation, technical approach, and the infrastructure elements. It also describes(More)
The multi-angle spectro-polarimetric imager (MSPI) is an advanced camera system under development at JPL for possible future consideration on a satellite based Aerosol-Cloud-Environment (ACE) mission as defined in the National Academies 2007 Decadal Survey. The MSPI project consists of three phases: Ground-MSPI, Air-MSPI, and Space-MSPI. Ground-MSPI is a(More)
The Earth Sciences Decadal Survey identifies a multiangle, multispectral, high-accuracy polarization imager as one requirement for the Aerosol-Cloud-Ecosystem (ACE) mission. JPL has been developing a Multiangle SpectroPolarimetric Imager (MSPI) as a candidate to fill this need. A key technology development needed for MSPI is on-board signal processing to(More)
Introduction: The TextureCam concept is a “smart camera” that aims to improve scientific return by increasing science autonomy and observation capabilities both when the spacecraft is stationary and when it is traversing. This basic onboard science understanding can summarize terrain encountered during travel [1] and direct autonomous instrument deployment(More)
