Paper Abstract

Stellar Optics Research International Corporation (SORIC) has compiled one of the world's largest resources of spectral reflectance and bidirectional reflectance distribution function (BRDF) data for black, white and reflective surfaces and materials. Most of the data has come from formerly proprietary, private sources in the U.S.A., Canada, and the former U.S.S.R., as well as from international, publicly accessible, and private research papers and reports. From this databank, SORIC is creating a series of full-featured, interactive database products available for use with PCs. The first data module that will be released is for BRDF data and the properties of black and white surfaces and materials commonly employed within or viewed by ground-based and space-based instrument applications. The surfaces and materials serve the functions of: (1) stray light control, (2) thermal control, (3) calibration, and (4) visual target cues. The associated BRDF data module can be used with stray light analysis packages, or in conjunction with the black and white surfaces and materials data module. This paper presents an update on the overall database project, and its data modules.
