Abstract

This paper reports the design and construction of a low-cost, multispectral imaging system using a single, large format CCD and an array of 18 individual lenses coupled to individual spectral filters. The system allows the simultaneous acquisition of 18 subimages, each with potentially different optical information. The subimages are combined to create a composite image, highlighting the desired spectral information. Because all the subimages are acquired simultaneously, the composite image shows no motion artifact. Although the present configuration uses 17 narrow bandpass optical filters to obtain multispectral information from a scene, the system is designed to be a general purpose, multiaperture platform, easily reconfigured for other multiaperture imaging modes.
