     17 1. The ATM is placed in the light bench kept at Kidlington.
     18 1. The ATM is run for 500-1000 scans at the 12.5, 25 and 50 scan speeds with the light off (gets dark current values).
     19 1. The light is then switched on and left to warm up for 3-4hrs.
     20 1. Another set of captures is then made with the light on.
     21 1. These data are then processed into level 1 HDFs (without calibration being applied!) to get raw sensor values.
     22 1. For each channel (1-10)
     23   1. Using some smoothing, find the brightest columns in the image (this will be near the centre point and will be where the ATM scan head is closest to perpendicular to the light source.
     24   1. Take the average of the column to get the typical value (mode best for dark current, mean best for lit value)
     25
     26For channels 9 and 10 (SW IR), there is a fudge factor - apparently the ATM instrument records lower values when in the air than on the ground.  One should process a flight line to get some idea of these, but the dark current is normally ~100-300 lower when flying.  '''does this apply to the max value too?'''
