Paper Abstract

An Airborne Multi-angle Imaging SpectroRadiometer (AirMISR) instrument has been developed to assist in validation of the Earth Observing System (EOS) MISR experiment. The airborne instrument is built to the same performance specifications as MIST. Both instruments view the earth at nine discrete view angles, provide data products which are radiance scaled to Systeme International units, registered among the view angles, and geolocated. Whereas on-orbit MIST will acquire a global data set every nine days, The aircraft version is restricted to a target size of 9 by 11 km per aircraft run. AirMISR does, however, have the advantages of offering a means to testbed new mission procedures or camera designs, provide data sets which predate the MISR launch, and a means of returning to the laboratory to update the camera calibrations. This paper provides the AirMISR laboratory calibration results, as well as an example of a vicarious calibration exercise.
