Middle-infrared echelle cross-dispersion spectrometer ACS-MIR for the ExoMars Trace Gas Orbiter

Abstract : The middle-infrared (MIR) echelle spectrometer is one channel of the Atmospheric Chemistry Suite (ACS) package dedicated for the studies of the Martian atmosphere on board ExoMars Trace Gas Orbiter (TGO) planned for launch in 2016. The MIR channel of ACS is a cross-dispersion echelle instrument dedicated to solar occultation measurements in the range of 2.3–4.2 μm with the resolving power of ~50,000. MIR is dedicated to sensitive measurements of trace gases. The MIR channel consists of entry optics, an echelle spectrometer with a 140x250 mm grating and two-mirror collimator, two secondary steerable gratings, and a cryogenically cooled MCT detector array with proximity optics. The spectrometer operates in high orders of diffraction, allowing to acquire up to 17 orders at one detector frame, and to cover simultaneously ~300-nm spectral interval within the spectral range. The mechanism allows moving the secondary grating with a characteristic time of ~0.1 s. This concept is novel for space application. The instrument is a complete block with power and data interfaces, and the overall mass of 12 kg. The protoflight model of MIR is completed, integrated within the ACS suite, and is undergoing tests at the spacecraft. © (2015) COPYRIGHT Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE).
