NIST Reference Radiometry Using Space Station Instrumentation
Raju V. Datla, Albert C. Parr, D. B. Pollock, Thomas L. Murdock, E A. Early
There has been a persistent need to provide long-term calibration reliability and assurance of accuracy for space-based sensor performance. The International Space Station (ISS) could serve as a platform from which radiometry based on reference standards from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) can be carried out to augment the calibration of remote sensing platforms. The high degree of accuracy achieved in the calibration of sensors in the Midcourse Space Experiment will be reviewed as a proof of concept for data assurance with traceability to NIST, and possible uses of the ISS for the performing radiometry will be described.
