6 November 1996 In-flight radiometric calibration of HYDICE using a reflectance-based approach
Author Affiliations +
The reflectance-based method is used to determine an absolute radiometric calibration of the HYDICE sensor. Results are given for data collected at Ivanpah Playa, California on June 20, 1995. This paper describes the reflectance-based method as applied to the hyperspectral case of HYDICE. The method uses a modified version of a Gauss-Seidel radiative transfer code to predict the at- sensor radiances used to compute the calibration coefficients. Coefficients were obtained from several overflights of the target area. The results from this work show that calibration coefficients for several of the overflights agreed to better than 10% in all bands not affected by strong gaseous absorption, and better than 5% in portions of the visible and near-infrared.
