Paper Abstract

The status of the SPOT 1 calibration after nearly two years of flight is discussed in terms of measurements in the preflight period, validation in the post launch assessment and monitoring during flight. The results obtained with preflight sources, with an on board solar sensor and with test site measurements with ground truth on White Sands (New Mexico) are compared. Mention is also given to measurements with an on board internal lamp for calibration monitoring, intercomparisons between the two HRV's instruments by histogram matching, and analyses of images of snowy test sites for multiband calibration. The data are discussed and interpreted in this paper and finally lead to an estimation of the most likely calibration coefficients as well as an estimation of their accuracy.
