Abstract
The EO-1 Advanced Land Imager (ALI) is the first earth- orbiting instrument to be flown under NASA's New Millennium program. The ALI employs novel wide-angle optics and a multispectral and panchromatic spectrometer. EO-1 is a technology verification project designed to demonstrate comparable or improved Landsat spatial and spectral resolution at a substantial cost saving. This paper provides an overview of ground calibration and performance assessment of the ALI. Included are techniques for calibrating and assessing spatial, spectral, and radiometric parameters for this instrument. Additionally, the pre-flight technique used to verify in-flight solar calibration is discussed.
