Paper Abstract

The high resolution airborne imaging spectrometer APEX (Airborne Prism Experiment) is currently being built. In parallel, its data processing calibration chain is being designed. The complex design of this high resolution pushbroom instrument bears the risk of optical aberrations in the registered spatio-spectral frames. Such aberrations consist of so-called frown and smile effects, as well as ghost image, smear, and stray light contributions. A concept is presented which shall operationally improve image calibration by inversion of the sensor model.
