PRISM is a pushbroom imaging spectrometer currently in its second year of development at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, intended to address the needs of airborne coastal ocean science research. We give an overview of the instrument functionality and then describe progress in component and subsystem fabrication. In the second year, all critical components have been received and most have been integrated into their respective subsystems. The design of the vacuum enclosure has also been completed. We present results from the telescope and spectrometer subassemblies, the focal plane electronics tests, and the overall system assembly implementation.
