23 June 1983 In-Flight Radiometric Calibration Of Advanced Remote Sensing Systems
Author Affiliations +
Several methods for the in-flight calibration of advanced remote sensing systems are reviewed. Pre-f light and in-flight detector-based calibration are discussed. Calibration by reference to instrumented ground targets is suggested for current systems. Preliminary data are presented on the accuracy and sensitivity required of measurements of ground targets and the atmosphere between the targets and the sensor to achieve an uncertainty in absolute terms of less than ±3% in the calibration of Landsat-4 systems.
