Paper Abstract

The pre-launch measurements and test required for calibration and characterization of the advanced land imager (ALI), which will be flown on NASA's EO-1 mission, have been completed. The instrument level performance testing was conducted at MIT Lincoln Laboratory with the ALI in an operational environment. The overall calibration strategy, which includes both pre-launch and post-launch components, will be described in this paper. The fundamental sensor calibration data comprise five measurement categories: angular position in object space for each pixel; normalized spectral response functions; response coefficients; zero signal offsets; and modulation transfer functions. Performance and characterization test include measurements of noise, SNR, linearity, repeatability, image artifacts, stray light rejection, and cross-talk. An overview of the facilities, equipment, tests and results is presented here.
