PRONGHORN 2014 (SET-190/RTG106) - A Major Achievement for Thermal Infrared Hyperspectral Sensing within NATO
During the past 10 years, several NATO countries active in longwave infrared hyperspectral sensing expressed interest in conducting a joint data collection campaign. This effort would allow for sharing of experimental know-how, gathering of ground-based and airborne data, understanding of sensor performance and comparison of exploitation techniques on specific scenarios relevant to NATO, such as chemical spills, gas releases, C-IED. The SET-190/RTG 106 was created to achieve this ambitious goal, which was successfully completed in August 2014 at DRDC Suffield.
