Absolute spectrophotometry will be achieved with Fourier Transform Spectrometer modules covering the full 10-2000 GHz frequency range.

Broad band multichroic TES detectors, such as envisioned in the context of the PICO space mission (above), are one of the options considered for the multi-channel polarimetric imager. The PICO focal plane implements 21 photometric bands covering the 20-800 GHz frequency range.

Arrays of polarised Kinetic Inductance Detectors (KIDs) are an alternative to TES for broad-band polarimetric imaging.
