Paper Abstract

A simulation testbed has been developed to demonstrate and assess space-based wind measuring systems to reduce mission costs, extend mission life, and enable better data collection through impact studies, system trades, and the participation in Observing System Simulation Experiments (OSSEs). The numerical testbed is intended to determine the potential impact of proposed space-based and sub-orbital wind observing systems on analyses and forecasts. This paper presents the testbed used for evaluating two recent proposed space-based wind measuring concepts.
