abstract

A new method for performing a preflight calibration of an optical remote sensing instrument with an on-board solar diffuser calibration system is presented. The rationale, method, advantages, disadvantages, error sources, and expected accuracies are discussed. The method was applied to the SeaWiFS sensor to be flown on the SeaStar Satellite.
