NASA's Earth Science Roadmaps provide much insight into a variety of potential NASA applications for hybrid instruments such as C-HyR. In addition to their use in validation of atmospheric models, radiometers such as proposed here may be employed in flexible deployment of systems designed for systematic observations of O3, aerosol optical thickness, and effective albedo. The C-HyR proposed here may be incorporated into a variety of configurations appropriate to addressing the Carbon cycle and Ecosystems Roadmap, where wide dynamic range, hyperspectral configurations not possible with existing technology, can be applied. In addition to testing and validating radiometric models, these systems have an immediate application in ground and ocean color validation studies. This support includes deployments from small near-coastal vessels or even a variant of C-HyR for autonomous drifters. This product directly supports NASA satellite and aircraft missions and associated cal/val activities Commercial spectroradiometers fit all classical definitions of "niche market." Non-NASA benefits to this technology parallel the direct benefit to NASA, with an extension to increased opportunity for multidisciplinary studies in the field, such as near-shore to basin-wide phytoplankton ecological research, UV photodegradation of petroleum events, and fisheries studies such as visual predation or breeding cycles. International and domestic potential customers for this technology include government, university, and privately funded researchers interested in ocean color, phytoplankton ecology, fisheries, or photodegradation. Water quality monitoring and municipal drinking water systems are also traditional markets for legacy profiling systems such as C-OPS.
