Project Description

Radiometric calibration and optical analysis of in-flight satellite-based imagers is generally achieved using on-board systems and by vicarious observation of celestial objects and earth-based geographical locations. These methods have been the standard for most instruments currently deployed; however, on-board systems are costly and existing vicarious means have known drawbacks which impact uncertainty in final measurements.
This research assignment will focus on work to evaluate and advance the foundational radiometric and image analysis algorithms as well as develop and execute systematic in-field validation and verification.
