Abstract : From September 12-15, 1994, two midwave hyperspectral imagers (the Infrared Multi-spectral Sensor (IMSS) of Pacific Advanced Technology and the Livermore Imaging Fourier Transform Infrared Spectrometer (LIFTIRS) of Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory) made measurements of particular patches of forest background and a Lockheed Santa Cruz Facility test stand at various times of day and observed the firing of the rocket engine from a sensitive piece of hardware mounted in the Lockheed test stand. The hyperspectral image cubes of the same patch of background observed at various times will be used to investigate the temporal nature of the constituent-temperature interaction. The data of the rocket firing was collected as part of a classified program of the U.S. Army Missile Command. Two sets of data cubes taken of the same background region by IMSS and LIFTIRS simultaneously will be used both to compare the two instruments and to aid in instrument characterization. This paper describes the instruments used in this data collection, the types of backgrounds observed and the experiments performed, and the data collected. (MM)
