Workshop on Pre-flight Calibration and Characterisation of Optical Satellite Instruments for Earth Observation

The workshop seeks to bring together, experts from industrial and academic developers of instruments, those specifying, designing and performing calibration and characterisation as well as scientists, engineers, New Space actors, agencies and funding organisations interested in: what is and/or might be possible for a next generation instrument or future application. The workshop will be organised to encourage discussion and debate on what is ‘fit for purpose’ for particular types of application.

Topics include UV-SWIR and TIR
– Future Calibration / Characterisation Requirements
– Principles of Calibration / Characterisation / Traceability / Uncertainty and its Documentation / Reporting
– Spectral Response Function / Bandwidth / Wavelength / Smile (Discrete bands & Spectrometers)
– Stray Light (Out-of-Field, Out-of-Band), Point Spread Function, Ghosts, Scattered
– Radiometric Gain / Non-Linearity / Polarisation Sensitivity
