Paper Abstract

Two Geophysical Environmental Research Corp. (GER) scanners are discussed in this paper. The GER 63 channel airborne imaging spectrometer covers 0.4-2.5 micrometer. There are 24 channels from 500-1000 nm, 7 channels from 1-1.8 micrometer and 32 channels from 2-2.5 micrometer. The thermal scanner has one channel in 0.4-1.1 micrometer, one channel in 3-5 micrometer, 3 channels with 1 micrometer bandwidth in 8-12 micrometer, 6 channels with half micrometer bandwidth in 8-12 micrometer and one channel in 8-12 micrometer. The GER thermal scanner was first flown in January 1990. The initial results indicate that this type of scanner gives the lowest noise equivalent temperature available.
