Evolving from past black-and-white images, through present red-green-blue spectral colors, future remote imaging systems promise spectroscopic functionalities extending well beyond the visible wavelengths. This allows real-time spectral information to be gathered from multiple wavelength bands that is applicable to numerous remote sensing spectroscopy/imaging applications and aids target recognition. This paper reviews the wavelength tunable microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) optical filter technologies developed for the important infrared and the emerging terahertz wavelength bands of the electromagnetic spectrum with the fabrication effort being enabled by the Western Australian Node of the Australian National Fabrication Facility. A low size, weight and power (SWaP) platform solution is demonstrated delivering mechanically robust, field-portable, spectroscopic, chem/bio sensing suitable for deployment in remote sensing and imaging applications.
