VIRTIS is an hyperspectral imaging spectrometer in the visible and mid-infrared regions for remote sensing in deep space missions. The VIRTIS instrument is composed by two optical heads, VIRTIS-M (mapper) and VIRTIS-H (high spectral resolution), both passively cooled to 130K to limit background radiation.
VIRTIS-M includes a visible and a single IR (infrared) channel using the same all-reflective optical system, while VIRTIS-F has a single IR channel. The VIR-MS instrument includes a visible and a single infrared (IR) channel. All VIRTIS instruments are using IR detectors cooled to 70K by means of miniature Stirling cycle cryocoolers.
