A Compact Adaptable Microwave Limb Sounder for Atmospheric Composition (CAMLS)

Completed Technology Project

Project Description

The Compact Adaptable Microwave Limb Sounder (CALMS) project will develop the engineering model of a compact, light-weight, low-power CAMLS receiver/spectrometer core system at 340 GHz for observations of composition, humidity, temperature and clouds in Earth's upper troposphere and stratosphere. The CAMLS core system will: consist of only four subsystems, as compared to 46 for Microwave Limb Sounder (MLS) on the Aura satellite, achieve an order of magnitude reductions in size, weight, and power consumption over Aura MLS, and verify the core system's functions and performance in airborne test flights.
