Paper Abstract

NASA's Office of Commercial Programs is funding a multispectral sensor system to be used in the development of remote sensing applications. The Airborne Terrestrial Applications Sensor (ATLAS) is designed to provide versatility in acquiring spectral and spatial information and will be a test bed for the development of specifications for airborne and spaceborne remote sensing instrumentation for dedicated applications. This objective requires spectral coverage from the visible through thermal IR wavelengths, variable spatial resolution form 2-25 meters; high geometric and geolocation accuracy; on-board radiometric calibration; digital recording; and optimized performance for minimized cost, size, and weight.
