Paper Abstract

The Hyperion instrument mounted on the EO-1 spacecraft was launched November 21, 2000 into an orbit following LANDSAT-7 by 1 minute. Hyperion has a 7.5 km swath width, a 30 meter ground resolution and 10 nm spectral resolution extending from 400 nm to 2500 nm. The first portion of the mission was used to measure and characterize the on-orbit radiometric, spectral, image quality and geometric performance of the instrument. Lake Frome, a dry salt lake in South Australia was chosen as a calibration site for Hyperion. Surface spectral data were collected along a transect through the center of the lake prior to the Hyperion overpass. This paper discusses the incorporation of the Lake Frome ground measurements and analysis into the performance verification of the instrument.
