(Public domain)

The MODIS/ASTER (MASTER) Airborne Simulator is a joint project involving the Airborne Sensor Facility at the NASA Ames Research Center (ARC), the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), and U.S. Geological Survey's Earth Resources Observation and Science (EROS) Center. The primary objectives of the MASTER activity is to support the ASTER/MODIS instrument teams in the area of algorithm development, calibration and validation.  The MASTER sensor will underfly the Terra (EOS-AM1), ASTER and MODIS sensors to provide an additional radiometric calibration to assist with in-flight instrument performance characterization.
