The principle and scheme of the spatially modulated Fourier transform hyperspectral imager developed by authors for the Chinese Environment and Disaster Monitoring Small Satellite are introduced. The calculation of the main parameters and the key techniques of optics,mechanics,electronics,calibration and data reconstruction are discussed in detail. The first results of datacubes with some spectra obtained by the hyperspectral imager (called EDIS) in orbit are presented.

Key words:   Environment and Disaster Monitoring Small Satellite      Fourier transform hyperspectral imager      Spatially       modulated
