|FY2011 AVIRIS Flight Request Information
To submit flight requests for the NASA Airborne Visible Infrared Imaging Spectrometer (AVIRIS) in FY2011, visit the website below.
These requests are for data acquisitions during the period from Oct 1, 2011 to April 16, 2012.
Please note that we are working to use the terms "imaging spectroscopy" and "imaging spectrometer data" rather than "hyperspectral." This allows us to communicate more clearly with our physics, chemistry, and biology science colleagues.
NASA's Suborbital Science Program Online Flight Request System (SOFRS)
New AVIRIS Investigators should register an account and login via the SOFRS.
This request opportunity is for 4 m through 20 m spatial resolution AVIRIS data. AVIRIS is able to fly on the NASA ER-2 (15 - 20 m) and WB-57 (10 - 15 m), and the Commercial Proteus (6 - 10 m) and Twin Otter (4 - 6 m) aircraft. Not all of these platforms are available all the time and require scheduling in advance.
If you have a NASA related proposal or project that can be supported with AVIRIS acquisitions, it is important that you contact your program manager to notify them of your pending flight request. It is suggested that you submit a flight request to initiate a cost estimate for the Research Opportunity in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) Proposal process. Information on future ROSES can be found here: http://nspires.nasaprs.com/external
Final approval of all flight requests is at the discretion of the discipline program manager and the suborbital science program manager. Investigators with other agencies interested in AVIRIS data acquistion should also submit a flight request.
