An analysis is presented on the passive standoff detection and identification of Bacillus subtilis (BG) clouds with the Compact ATmospheric Sounding Interferometer (CATSI) sensor. This research is based on recent spectral measurements obtained during the Technology Readiness Evaluation trial held July 2002 at Dugway Proving Ground, Utah. Results obtained(More)
Telops has developed the Hyper-Cam, a rugged and compact infrared hyperspectral imager. The Hyper-Cam is based on the Fourier-transform technology yielding high spectral resolution and enabling high accuracy radiometric calibration. The Hyper-Cam has been used on the ground in several field campaigns, including the demonstration of standoff chemical agent(More)
Recent results are presented on the passive detection, identification, and quantification of a vapor cloud of SF6 measured at a horizontal standoff distance of 5.7 km using a dual-beam interferometer optimized for background signal suppression. The measurements were performed at Defense Research and Development Canada (DRDC)-Valcartier during a number of(More)
A method for the passive remote monitoring of chemical vapors by differential Fourier-transform infrared radiometry is presented to determine the characteristics of a chemical vapor plume from a stack located at a distance of more than 1 km from the sensor. This measurement technique is based on the use of a double-beam Fourier-transform infrared(More)
Airborne hyperspectral ground mapping is being used in an ever-increasing extent for numerous applications in the military, geology and environmental fields. The different regions of the electromagnetic spectrum help produce information of differing nature. The visible, near-infrared and shortwave infrared radiation (400 nm to 2.5 µm) has been mostly used(More)
A preliminary investigation is made into the possibility of applying the passive standoff detection technique to the identification of radiological and related products. This work is based on laboratory measurements of the diffuse reflectance from a number of products, including U3O8, CsI, SrO, I2O5, and La2O3. These reflectances are incorporated into the(More)
The surface fluxes of several important radiatively active gases, including H 2 O, CO 2 , CH 4 , N 2 O, O 3 , and the chlorofluorocarbons CFC11 and CFC12, were simulated with the radiation band models from the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) community climate model 3 (CCM3), the single-column community atmospheric model (SCAM), and the(More)
The passive remote monitoring of multi-gas mixtures was experimentally investigated using Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) radiometry. The spectral radiance data were collected using a dual-port radiometrically balanced interferometer for a variety of multi-gas plumes at a standoff distance of 60 m. Two basic sets of mixtures were studied. The first set(More)
