The GSFC Code 618 Calibration Facility (CF) maintains instruments and NIST-traceable
calibrated sources to calibrate, monitor, and assess the performance of satellite-,
aircraft-, and ground-based remote sensing instrumentation. CF instruments and sources
span the spectrum from UV through Visible and into IR.
CF instruments, sources, and expertise are available to US Government agencies, the
international remote sensing community, and academic institutions.
CF laboratories are clean (Class 10000), permitting the calibration of satellite,
aircraft, ground, and laboratory instruments and sources with a minimized risk of
