Paper Abstract

The Hyperion Imaging Spectrometer is one of three principal instruments aboard the EO-1 spacecraft. Its mission as a technology demonstrator is to evaluate on-orbit issues for imaging spectroscopy and to assess the capabilities of a space-based imaging spectrometer for earth science and earth observation missions. The instrument provides earth imagery at 30 meter spatial resolution. 7.5 km swath width in 220 contiguous spectral bands at 10 nm spectral resolution. Spectral range is from 0.4 micrometers to 2.5 micrometers . The instrument includes internal and solar calibration sub- systems. This paper will review the design, construction and calibration of the Hyperion instrument. The on-orbit plans and operations will be presented along with updated calibration and characterization measurements.
