Test objects and program support for measurement of the spatial resolution of materials used in aerospace imaging in the visible and near infrared are developed. Results from an experimental test of the measurement technique for validation of the spectroscopic characteristics of detectors in satellite remote sensing systems and prospects for further use of a comprehensive test site for this purpose are discussed.
