Airborne Visible and Infrared Imaging Spectrometer
The AVIRIS is the second in a series of imaging spectrometer instruments developed at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) for Earth remote sensing. This instrument uses scanning optics and four spectrometers to image a 614 pixel swath simultaneously in 224 contiguous spectral bands.
*at the nominal ER-2 altitude of 65,000 ft
