Description
CoSMIR, originally developed for the calibration/validation of the Special Sensor Microwave/Imager/ Sounder (SSMIS),, is an airborne, 9-channel total power radiometer modified to have scan mode to acquire both conical and across-track scan data simultaneously in a given flight. The well-calibrated radiometric data between 50-183 GHz has an accuracy on the order of ±1 K.
