We present a method for the sensor spectral response calibration of the «Sich-2» multispectral satellite system on the basis of satellite imaging for ground calibration test sites. A special parameterization of spectral response functions of the multispectral sensor is proposed. The parameterization allows one to solve analytically a system of equations for optical radiation transfer. We discuss our preliminary results for the sensor spectral response calibration of the «Sich-2» multispectral satellite system which are obtained from actual imagery and ground spectrometry measurements �в’язати систему рівнянь переносу оптичного випромінювання аналітично.
