CASI

The Compact Airborne Spectrographic Imager (CASI) is a multispectral sensor that operates over the visible and near infra-red spectral range. It was retired from service at the end of the 2007 season. For more technical information on the sensor see the ARSF operations page at http://arsf.nerc.ac.uk/instruments/casi.asp

Spectral response

This document describes how to calculate the spectral response from ARSF processed CASI data.

Raw data format

The CASI format is apparently internal to ITRES. A scan of files here indicates a header made up of NULL terminated strings, with the first bytes being "CasiFileHeader".

There's a lot more strings afterwards, as shown below with NULLs converted to newlines. Following this there appears to be raw data frames of some kind.
