Well, it's been 4 days and it seems the US-based reseller is not keen on providing the information either or they are not allowed to do so. Perhaps it's a protocol in agreement with commercial software providers. Without access to these such as ERDAS or ENVI, I am stuck in my preprocessing.

Here is the data from the first graph in the document [1], i.e. visible, 
nir and pan bands. The attached graphic showing the results seems quite 
similar to the one in the document. But this is still only an

We still need the data for the swir bands, but I have to stop for now.
