1 August 1991 Ratioing radiometer for use with a solar diffuser
Author Affiliations +
The use of an on-board solar diffuser has been proposed to monitor the in-flight calibration of satellite sensors. This paper presents the preliminary specifications and design for a ratioing radiometer, to be used to determine the change in radiance of the solar diffuser. The issues involved in spectral channel selection are discussed and the effects of stray light are presented. An error analysis showing the benefit of the ratioing radiometer is included.
