[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: The Earth Observing One (EO-1) satellite was
launched in November 2000 as a technology demonstration mission
with an estimated 1-year lifespan. It has now successfully
completed 12 years of high spatial resolution imaging operations
from low Earth orbit. EO-1’s two main instruments, Hyperion
and the Advanced Land Imager (ALI), have both served as prototypes
for new generation satellite missions. ALI, an innovative
multispectral instrument, is the forerunner of the Operational
Land Imager (OLI) onboard the Landsat Data Continuity Mission’s
(LDCM) Landsat-8 satellite, recently launched in Feb.
2013. Hyperion, a hyperspectral instrument, serves as the heritage
orbital spectrometer for future global platforms, including the
proposed NASA Hyperspectral Infrared Imager (HyspIRI) and
the forthcoming (in 2017) German satellite, EnMAP.
This JSTARS Special Issue is dedicated to EO-1. This paper
serves as an introduction to the Hyperion and ALI instruments,
their capabilities, and the important contributions this mission
has made to the science and technology communities. This paper
also provides an overview of the EO-1 mission, including the
several operational phases which have characterized its lifetime.
It also briefly describes calibration and validation activities, and
gives an overview of the spin-off technologies, including disaster
monitoring and new Web-based tools which can be adapted for
use in future missions.
