Abstract—The product generation from hyperspectral sensor
data has high requirements on the processing infrastructure,
both hardware and software. The APEX (Airborne Prism Experiment) processing and archiving facility has been set up to provide for the automated generation of level 1 calibrated data and user configurable on-demand product generation for higher processing levels. The system offers full reproducibility of user orders and processing parameters by employing a relational database. The flexible workflow software allows for the quick integration of novel algorithms or the definition of new processing sequences. Reprocessing of data is supported by the archiving approach. Configuration management based on the database enables the control over different versions of processing modules to be applied. The system is described with a focus on the APEX instrument, however, its generic design allows adaptation to other sensor systems.
