AirMISR Data and Information

Airborne Multi-angle Imaging SpectroRadiometer (AirMISR) is an airborne instrument for obtaining multi-angle imagery similar to that of the satellite-borne MISR instrument, which is designed to contribute to studies of the Earth's ecology and climate. AirMISR flies on the NASA-owned ER-2 aircraft. The instrument was built for NASA by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California.

AirMISR utilizes a single camera in a pivoting gimbal mount to obtain data in four spectral bands at nine viewing angles. A data run by the NASA ER-2 aircraft is divided into nine segments, each with the camera positioned to one of these angles. The nine angles are 0° or nadir, 26.1° fore and aft, 5.6° fore and aft, 60.0° fore and aft and 70.5° fore and aft. The center wavelength for the spectral bands are blue at 443 nanometers (nm), green at 555 nm, red at 670 nm and near-infrared at 865 nm.
