Completion and Testing of PACS SWIR Channel

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Completion and Testing of PACS SWIR Channel

PACS SWIR has important technological innovations that will be necessary to meet the mission requirements for wide FOV, hyperangle capability, high polarimetric accuracy, and 1 km pixel size at NADIR.

The SWIR wavelengths are essential for science requirements for aerosol retrievals over land, for enhanced particle microphysics, and for aerosol absorption estimates.  SWIR wavelengths also add important microphysical and thermodynamic information for cloud particles.
