In this paper, an optimal out-of-band (OOB) correction transform (OOBCT) for dealing with onboard Visible/Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) OOB effects is proposed. This paper addresses the OOB response issue without consideration of the impact of other error sources on the correction processing. The OOBCT matrix is derived by minimizing an objective function of error summation between the expected and realistic recovered band-averaged spectral radiances. Using the VIIRS filter transmittance functions for all multiband sensors obtained from prelaunch laboratory measurements and a simulated dataset obtained from Airborne Visible InfraRed Imaging Spectrometer (AVIRIS) hyperspectral data, the OOBCT matrix is numerically computed. The processing of the OOB correction is straightforward and can be performed by a product between the OOBCT matrix and a measured multispectral image vector. The experimental results with both AVIRIS and Hyperspectral Imager for the Coastal Ocean datasets demonstrate that the ratios of average errors of recovered band-averaged spectral radiances divided by the measured radiances with the OOB responses are less than 4%. The average values of the relative errors for all pixels and bands indicate that the OOBCT method outperforms the works reported in literature.
