The unit has a programmable calibration/validation
schedule with auto prompt and reporting, and it's durable enough to withstand the rigors of production.
With a lot of practice, it still takes us a minimum of one-half hour to set up a proper two-point calibration/validation
with our temperature-standard thermometer--even though we have two of everything and can complete the tasks (both hot and cold) simultaneously.
And SBRS, the heritage partner with Lockheed Martin on all Landsats to date, contributes its in-depth knowledge of the Landsat science data, calibration/validation
and instrument design.
