The effect of a single defective mask element on the output signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) for a stationary-mask Hadamard transform (HT) spectrometer is investigated. The decrease in output-SNR from that of an HT spectrometer having a perfect mask is found to be dependent on the amount
of energy impinging on the defective element. A method of compensating for the defective mask element is presented. The method is computationally inexpensive and can be fully automated.
