Abstract

Hyperspectral imaging (HSI) is an exciting and rapidly expanding area of instruments and technology in passive remote sensing. Due to quickly changing applications, the instruments are evolving to suit new uses and there is a need for consistent definition, testing, characterization and calibration. This paper seeks to outline a broad prescription and recommendations for basic specification, testing and characterization that must be done on Visible Near Infra-Red grating-based sensors in order to provide calibrated absolute output and performance or at least relative performance that will suit the user’s task. The primary goal of this paper is to provide awareness of the issues with performance of this technology and make recommendations towards standards and protocols that could be used for further efforts in emerging procedures for national laboratory and standards groups.
