Abstract [en]

To perform radiometric calibrations of image data, reference sources are needed in order to acquire data at two or more radiance levels giving the calibration parameters. Due to sensor drift for detectors in the infrared region the parameters have to be frequently recalculated during an extended signature measurement if the accuracy is to be maintained. In signature measurements where the incident radiance levels from hot targets are exceeding the background by many orders of magnitude the reference sources need to emit radiation at high radiance levels. Such reference sources are more complex and so is the handling of these sources. The calibration procedure tends to become impractical in field trials where several spectral bands are involved, which increases the need for reference data and the number of reference sources. A method to radiometric calibrate hotspot target data by using only a few simple reference sources close to ambient temperatures has been evaluated in this paper. Reference data has been collected both in laboratory studies and in field trials at various weather conditions. The accuracy and the precision of the method are presented. The uncertainty due to sensor drift is estimated. Error sources connected to the calibration method are discussed.
