The Hyperion Imaging Spectrometer was the first imaging spectrometer to routinely acquire science-grade data from Earth orbit. Instrument performance was validated and carefully monitored through a combination of calibration approaches: solar, lunar, earth (vicarious) and atmospheric observations complemented by onboard calibration lamps and extensive prelaunch calibration. Innovative techniques for spectral calibration of space-based sensors were also tested and validated. Instrument performance met or exceeded predictions including continued operation well beyond the planned one-year program.
