Project Dates: 2015 - 2016

NPL, in collaboration with Brockmann Consult, has delivered the first version of the Radiometric Uncertainty Tool (RUT) for the Sentinel-2 mission. This innovative tool provides uncertainty images associated to the Top-of-Atmosphere reflectance images delivered by the European Space Agency (ESA).

The first version of the tool already incorporates the possibility to define a specific coverage factor and select/deselect the contributors through the user interface.

The uncertainty estimates are based in an exhaustive radiometric analysis of both the instrument and radiometric processing chain of the Sentinel-2 mission. The combination model is based on the GUM guidelines.

The tool is under continuous development and opened to the community and other missions at the repository webpage
