Since their launch in February 1986 and January 1990, we have, from time to time, conducted radiometric calibrations of the SPOT-1 and -2 Haute Resolution Visible (HRV) cameras at White Sands, New Mexico. We summarize the results of the calibrations, comparing the absolute calibration coefficients obtained from the White Sands data to the relative calibrations obtained from the on-board tungsten lamp.
