8 September 2015 JPSS-1 VIIRS prelaunch spectral characterization and performance
Author Affiliations +
The JPSS-1 VIIRS instrument completed sensor level testing, including spectral characterization, at the Raytheon El Segundo facility in 2014. Spectral subject matter experts (SMEs) of the VIIRS DAWG have reviewed and analyzed the spectral measurements leading to a Version 1 release of JPSS-1 VIIRS relative spectral response (RSR) data in June 2015. The analysis demonstrates that all bands are well characterized with minor performance specification non-compliances in a few bands similar to those seen on S-NPP VIIRS. A major reduction in the out-of-band response (compared to that seen for S-NPP) has been realized through the redesign of the JPSS-1 VIIRS integrated filter assembly for the warm focal plane bands. An EAR99 restricted DAWG Version 1 release consisting of detector and band average (over all detectors) in-band + out-of-band RSR for all VIIRS bands is available on the NASA JPSS-1 eRoom limited access site and replaces the previous Version 0 Beta release.
