Traceable Measurement for Earth Observation Instrumentation
The Optical Technologies group can provide a number of solutions for the earth observation community. These include the calibration, characterisation and advice for sub-systems and components for satellite instruments, 'end-to-end' pre-launch calibration through to the calibration of instrumentation used for vicarious calibration.
The following are examples of some of the work that has been carried out by the Optical Technologies group:
The optical technologies group has provided calibration services for a variety of Earth observation instrumentation.
NPL has and continues to develop a range of black bodies for use as transfer standards.
NPL has helped calibrate a number of satellite systems.
NPL provides calibration services and support for 'ground-based' measurements, including the calibration of sources and detectors. The following is an example of our capability for support for vicarious calibration.
