Abstract
The NASA has built two airborne sensors to simulate space- borne instruments to be flown on the EOS AM-1 Terra satellite, scheduled for launch in 1999. The intent of these airborne systems is to provide initial, or 'precursor' data set to EOS investigators for algorithm development, as well as to conduct calibration and validation under-flights after the AM-1 platform has been launched. The MODIS Airborne Simulator (MAS), and the MODIS/ASTER Simulator, were designed to support investigations by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectro-radiometer, and the Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer science teams, respectively.
