16 October 1998 TRWIS III hyperspectral imager: instrument performance and remote sensing applications
Author Affiliations +
The TRW Imaging Spectrometer III airborne hyperspectral imager was competed in 1996. The spectrometer is a pushbroom sensor that gathers information in 384 contiguous spectral channels covering the 400nm to 2450nm wavelength range. TRWIS III was designed to fly on many different aircraft platforms and to meet critical performance requirements for image quality, co-registration of spectral samples, spectral calibration, noise and radiometric accuracy. Along with its first several seasons of operational demonstrations, the instrument has undergone laboratory performance validation, radiometric calibration, and system upgrades. This paper will describe the current TRWIS III system, the data calibration and correction system, and the instrument's applications to remote sensing.
