Abstract
The purpose of this paper is to briefly describe the operational characteristics of the Airborne Bathymetric System Multispectral scanner (ABS) and the Airborne Multispectral Pushbroom Scanner (AMPS)', two airborne multispectral sensors being developed at NASA's Earth Resources Laboratory (ERL). The ERE, located at the National Space Technology Laboratories (NSTL) in southern Mississippi', has been designing, fabricating', testing', evaluating, calibrating, operating, and maintaining airborne remote sensing systems since 1971. Included in this overall activity are the Thematic Mapper Simulator (TMs)', Thermal Infrared Multispectral Scanner (TIMS) , Calibrated Airborne Multispectral Scanner (CAMS)', NS001 Multispectral Scanner (based at the NASA/Ames Research Center)', as well as the State of Louisiana's Daedalus 1260 Multispectral scanner.
