This paper describes a collaborative collection campaign to spectrally image and measure a well characterized scene for hyperspectral algorithm development and validation/verification of scene simulation models (DIRSIG). The RIT Megascene, located in the northeast corner of Monroe County near Rochester, New York, has been modeled and characterized under the(More)
This work describes the water collection experiment component of the Megacollect 2004 campaign. Megacol-lect was a collaborative campaign coordinated by RIT with several institutions to spectrally measure various target/background scenarios with airborne sensors and ground instruments. An extension to the terrestrial campaign was an effort to simultaneously(More)
Image intensifying cameras have been found to be extremely useful in low-light-level (LLL) scenarios including military night vision and civilianrescue operations. These sensors utilize the available visible region photons and an amplification process to produce high contrast imagery. It has been demonstrated that processing techniques can further enhance(More)
This study investigates small aerosol particles as a source of an imaging phenomenon observed in thermal remote sensing data. The phenomenon is characterized by degraded atmospheric transmissions in the thermal infrared while high transmissions (clear conditions) are observed in the visible wavelength region. This atmospheric anomaly has been linked to(More)
Problem: The use of physics-based numerical models has been an emerging paradigm in the analysis of remote sensing data and the development of exploitation algorithms. Iterative computing of these models, however, has been a restricting factor in this process. We present several remote sensing research case studies conducted by the Digital Imaging and(More)
Signature Date iii Acknowledgements Few theses are written alone, and I would like to take this opportunity to thank those people who have been most instrumental in bringing this work to a close. I will most probably omit someone, and for this I apologize in advance. Without my family I would have never started on this journey. I'd like to thank my mother(More)
This paper describes a concept for using physics based models to support exploitation of remotely sensed image spectrometer data. It then reviews several methods from the literature illustrating more specifically how physics based models have been used as part of atmospheric correction, water quality assessment and temperature measurement algorithms.(More)
