|Purpose:||13STFAYO07: This project entitled «Observations of Earth's surface and aerosol with a balloon-borne imaging Fabry-Perot spectrometer» has the objective(s) :
New instruments for atmospheric science related to meteorology application: This project will foster the creation of a critical mass of engineers, atmospheric scientists and students through the modification and completion of a miniature O2 A-band Fabry-Perot 2-D imaging spectrometer, developed by MPB Communications Inc. The project will provide the detailed design, modification, fabrication and validation of this spectrometer for atmospheric science, air quality and meteorology applications. Engineers, scientists and students will work closely on mechanical, electrical and optical aspects to complete its development. This instrument will then be tested on a balloon flight. The measurements of the spectrometer will also be analyzed.
