Paper Abstract

During operation, space-borne sensor system calibrations may drift away from preflight measured values. Present sensor internal radiometric calibration systems are also subject to error and drift. Natural targets can be used to determine temporal radiometric response changes. In addition, use of common targets having uniform reflectance and thermal emittance permits cross-checking the responses of different sensors.
