D&P Instruments: passive mode (emission) FTIR Spectrometer (2 - 16 µm)


Portable FTIR Spectrometer (2 – 16 µm) for Remote Sensing and Emission Spectrometry

Model 102

  • Rugged remote sensing field and industrial instrument
  • Lightweight, low power, highly portable, and completely standalone
  • Absolute calibrated radiance, temperature and emissivity field measurements

Short Description

The US based company Designs & Prototypes supplies compact and portable emission mode FTIR spectrometers since 1984, which has served the research needs of scientists and engineers worldwide. The 102 model (known as the micro FTIR in the scientific community) is a rugged, lightweight, hand portable, remote sensing field and industrial instrument for temperature and emissivity measurements. The 102 model is the ideal field instrument for groundtruthing in thermal infrared (TIR) remote sensing acquisitions.
