A novel design for a earth observation combined spectrometer and polarimeter is presented. The goal of the instrument is to measure both intensity (radiance) and the state of polarization. Some backgrounds for this instrument are presented but the main part of this article will be on the optical design and the ideas behind it. © 2013 SPIE.
