Unified Simulator for Earth Remote Sensing (USERS)

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Develop USERS as a service-based tool suite providing simulated measurements for a wide range of instruments aimed at remote sensing of the atmosphere, on missions such as SMAP, GPM, ACE, SCLP, A-Train, and others, based on input from atmospheric models. It will enable:
Immediate and accurate verification of the achievability of desired scientific requirements.
Efficient implementation of multi-instrument, multi-platform Observing System Simulation Experiments (OSSE's).
Rapid integration of new models.
Efficient and accurate performance assessment of on-board or ground-based processing methods to achieve scientific requirements given available hardware and financial resources.
