13 October 2010 Onboard spectral calibration for the Japanese hyper-spectral sensor
Author Affiliations +
The Japanese hyper-spectral sensor provides data products covering continuous spectral bands in the wavelength range from 400 nm to 2500 nm. It is characterized by a SNR of > 450 in the VNIR and>300 in the SWIR range at a ground resolution of 30 m x30 m. This report is concerned with the onboard wavelength calibration methods for the Japanese hyper-spectral sensor. As a result of trade study, the combination of a transmission type glass filter containing rare earth oxides, a Mylar polyester film and a quartz tungsten-halogen-lamp was selected. This method covers the wavelength range from 400 nm to 2450 nm. For the purpose of wavelength shift estimation, the method employing the mean square deviation as merit-function was found to be stable and precise. The accuracy of the absorption peak wavelength determination will be expected less than 2% (=0.2 nm) for the VNIR spectral resolution and 5% (=0.625 nm) for the SWIR spectral resolution.
