The spatial spectral compressive spectral imager (SSCSI) is a proposed optical architecture, where the spatial-spectral coding of a scene is realized by a binary ON-OFF mask and a dispersive element. The quality of the recovered hyperspectral scene in SSCSI depends on various parameters, such as the coded aperture location with respect to the sensor, the coded aperture and detector pitch sizes, and the diffraction introduced by the grating. Given these parameters, the sensing matrix of the imager is largely dependent on the coded aperture structure and characteristics. As such, its optimization is critical to maximizing the quality of the recovered scene.
