Middle Atmosphere Sounder and Thermal Emission Radiometer (MASTER)

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Middle Atmosphere Sounder and Thermal Emission Radiometer
Develop a compact instrument design for measurements of stratospheric temperature, ozone, carbon dioxide, and water vapor essential to understanding climate. MASTER would: enable an instrument concept to fill the data gap beyond EOS-Aura develop a small, low-cost infrared limb sounder based on experience with NASA SABER, HIRDLS, and LIMS instruments advance a design applicable to a hosted payload or to a small satellite for sustainable measurements over coming decades provide a mass/power design of 35 kg/35 W (half of the current SABER instrument) More »
