Calibration/Validation Technology for the CO2 Satellite

Completed Technology Project

Project Description

Calibration/Validation Technology for the CO2 Satellite
AOS has shown that it is feasible to use the combined NASA/SBIR resources from Phases I and II to: (i) Build a turn-key analyzer system that has the dual-band/differential architecture and is small, light and sensitive enough to be deployed in the smallest zone of the Global Hawk (GH); (ii) Demonstrate TRL 9 and flight readiness of the analyzer system for deployment on the GH and (iii) Validate the analyzer system for observations of CO2 DMF by double-blind comparison with the flask sampling technology of NOAA/GMD and by broadband comparison with an AOS analyzer system that have been validated on hundreds of airborne missions. The net result of Phase II will be a TRL 9 CO2 analyzer system that can be deployed on the GH as needed for NASA field studies and validation of CO2 satellites. More »
