Paper Abstract

As part of the Triana mission, the Scripps Earth Polychromatic Imaging Camera (Scripps-EPIC) will view the full sunlit side of Earth from the Lagrange-1 point. The National Institute of Standards and Technology and the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, in collaboration with the contractor, Lockheed-Martin, planned the radiometric calibration of Scripps-EPIC. The measurements for this radiometric calibration were selected based upon the optical characteristics of Scripps-EPIC, the measurement equation relating signal to spectral radiance, and the available optical sources and calibrated radiometers. The guiding principle for the calibration was to perform separate, controlled measurements for each parameter in the measurement equation, namely dark signal, linearity, exposure time, and spectral radiance responsivity.
