The storage of energy for driving coronal heating and dynamics is widely believed to occur in the magnetic field. Many of the most recent instruments has thus been developed to investigate the locations of this energy release or to measure the magnetic field. Several techniques are employed to complete these observations and these are most often spectral imaging, imaging spectroscopy and spectropolarimetry (a variant of imaging spectroscopy). At the Marshall Space Flight Center, NASA, we are developing several lines of instrumentation to address technology development in these areas of astrophysics remote sensing instrumentation. In this talk we will introduce the lines of technology development and provide an overview of the science associated with each observable.
