NIST should also encourage SI traceability and promote implementation of the report, "Best practice guidelines for pre-launch characterization and calibration of instruments for passive optical remote sensing, NISTIR 7637." (7) In particular, NIST should facilitate end-to end, system-level calibrations of sensors and actively deploy transfer standards, such as Travelling SIRCUS (Spectral Irradiance and Radiance Responsivity Calibrations using Uniform Sources) (10) and the Hyperspectral Image Projector (HIP) (11) for the reflected-solar region and the TXR for characterization of the emissivity and validation of the radiance of infrared sources used for calibrating space bound IR sensors.
