Prelaunch Characterization Data

The PACE Mission will carry three instruments: Ocean Color Instrument (OCI), Spectro-polarimeter for Planetary Exploration one (SPEXone), and Hyper-Angular Rainbow Polarimeter 2 (HARP2). The latest information on radiometric/polariometric characterization and performance, including relative spectral response (RSR) and signal to noise (SNR) is provided here for each sensor.


The OCI instrument is highly configurable with respect to spectral sampling across the hyperspectral focal planes. Final spectral sampling of OCI has not yet been decided. Current best estimates on radiometric performance as derived from engineering test unit (ETU) testing and modeling are provided here.
