NERC Spectrometer example

ATC Innovations were contracted to design and build a prototype fore-optics system for a new type of field spectrometer.  This will have a combined measurement of environmental targets and sky conditions – something that current spectrometers are unable to do.  The system captures light from both the target and sky simultaneously, and then divides the light between two spectrometer channels (visible/near-IR and short wave IR).

  • Customer is an expanding world class facility supporting Earth System Science
  • ATC provided the whole range of design & build activities
    • Concept design
    • Detailed optical, mechanical and electrical designs
    • Production of CAD models and drawings
    • Design Report
    • Procurement
    • Build

This kind of problem really demonstrates the strength of ATCs system approach to engineering.
