We present an analysis of the features of field spectrometers for remote sensing of the Earth's surface and ground objects as well as for satellite validation of spectrometric data which were developed from the 1930s to the present time. Advanced technology achievements developed and tested in field spectrometers were and will be implemented in a number of airborne spectrometers for various purposes.
