Abstract: As a continuing effort to increase the calibration accuracy of the AVIRIS data a number of recent improvements have been implemented and are in the process of being tested during the 1994 flight season. These include the following innovations: A direct observation of a laboratory radiance standard is now used to double check the wide field-of-view calibration via an integrating sphere source. Launch site field calibration of the AVIRIS sensor is now being planned to augment the laboratory and inflight calibration. Modification to a dry air conditioning unit has been made to enable ground calibration at flight operating temperatures. One hundred lines of dark imagery has been added to the end of each flight line to assist in the analysis and removal of residual coherent noise. The intensity of the onboard calibration lamp has been modified to improve response in the blue end of the spectrum. Novel spectral filters have been installed in the onboard calibration source.
