The Plankton, Aerosol, Cloud ocean Ecosystem (PACE) mission Ocean Color Instrument (OCI) is the next generation ocean color sensor following on from the SeaWiFS and VIIRS designs, to be launched into low Earth orbit in 2022. Like those heritage sensors, OCI has cross track scanning fore-optics, the reflectivity of which (referred to here as the response versus scan angle or RVS) must be characterized prior to launch. The expected test setup, component reflectivity measurements, instrument model, and heritage sensor testing were used to generate simulated RVS data. This simulated data set was then used to verify the functionality of the analysis software in preparation for the upcoming ground test campaign. The analysis software is designed to characterize the RVS for all OCI bands over the full range of scan angles to be measured on orbit as well as verify compliance with the sensor design requirements in near real-time.
