AVIRIS (Airborne Visible Infrared Imaging Spectrometer)5The Airborne Visible InfraRed Imaging Spectrometer (AVIRIS) was designed and built by the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL).

It is a whiskbroom scanner, and it flies on several airborne platforms.

The swath and spatial resolution depend on the flying height and over-ground speed of the aircraft.Cont6On the NASA ER-2 jet at 20 km above MSL, AVIRIS covers an 11 km swath at 20 m GSD.

On a DeHaviland Twin Otter turboprop at 4 km AGL, AVIRIS covers a 2 km swath at 4 m GSD.

224 contiguous spectral channels

Radiometric resolution: 12 bitNote7AVIRIS is flown primarily for NASA-funded scientists and researchers. Graduate students can obtain small amounts of existing AVIRIS data at no cost.



CASI-2 (Compact Airborne Spectrographic Imager-2)9The Compact Airborne Imaging Spectrometer (CASI) is built by ITRES Research Ltd., of Canada

It can collect data in 14-bit format for 288 bands at 2.5 nm nomi

However, the overall spectral range is limited to 650 nm, which is adjustable anywhere between 400 nm (blue) and 1050 nm (near-IR).nal intervals.

GSD in the range of 25 cm - 1.5 mHyperion10The Hyperion hyperspectral imaging sensor flies on the NASA Earth Observing-1 (EO-1) spacecraft launched in late 2000.

Pushbroom technology gives Hyperion a longer target look time than a scanning radiometer, which helps to overcome the signal-to-noise problem.11

It operates in the familiar spectral range of 400 - 2500 nmbut with a bandwidth of 15-20 nm rather than 10 as for AVIRIS and Hyperion
