1 December 1990 Earth Observing System instrument performance: Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectrometer case study

The requirements for characterization and calibration of instruments for the Earth Observing System space segment are defined in terms of tracking the Level 1 data for a sensor. The data must be traceable over the 15 year program, and must provide corrections for radiometric, spectral and geometric coefficients which capture the combined design and performance characteristics of the sensor. These requirements are then developed for MODIS-N to identify a set of techniques which can be used in the laboratory, spacecraft integrator's facility and in-orbit. The in-orbit of the so-called reflectance and radiance methods are reviewed, and the cross-calibrations available between HIRIS and MODIS through these techniques are listed. A scheme for the use of all available tools for instrument performance is provided as a Figure showing an estimated time interval over which each tool is expected to be useful. The final calibration strategy and plan must be developed through the understanding of a useful strategy for each of these candidate mechanisms.
