Improved thermal-vacuum compatible flat plate radiometric source for system-level testing of optical sensors
Steven W. Brown, Mark A. Schwarz, Craig J. Kent, Robert Bousquet
This work describes the development of an improved vacuum compatible flat plate radiometric source used for characterizing and calibrating remote optical sensors, in situ, throughout their testing period. The original flat plate radiometric source was developed for use by the VIIRS instrument during the NPOESS Preparatory Project (NPP). Following this effort, the FPI has had significant upgrades in order to improve both the radiometric throughput and uniformity. Results of the VIIRS testing with the reconfigured FPI are reported and discussed.
