Hawkeye is an ocean color instrument designed, manufactured and characterized at Cloud land Instruments, CA. It is a push broom instrument that has 8spectral bands similar to SeaWiFS and a spatial resolution of 120 m. Each spectral band has 1800 detectors (pixels) and all 14,000 detectors (pixels) need to be calibrated independently. This paper describes the preliminary design of on-orbit calibration method to correct for the instrument response's temperature sensitivity,scan angle dependency in radiometric sensitivity, relative spectral response (RSR),non linearity, and polarization sensitivity. We will provide a brief description on how each of the calibration parameters are used to address the instrument characteristics and how the calibration parameters are derived from instrument test data and use to retrieve ocean color products.
