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

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Develop the engineering model of a compact, light-weight, low-power CAMLS instrument at 340 GHz for observations of composition, humidity, temperature and clouds in Earth's upper troposphere and stratosphere. CAMLS core system will: • consist of only 6 subsystems, as compared to 46 for Microwave Limb Sounder (MLS) on the Aura satellite • be approximately 10 kg, 70 W, and 0.01 m3, as compared to ~270kg, 370W, ~1m3 for Aura MLS • Demonstrate CAMLS functions and performance in airborne test flights.
