Paper Abstract

PMOD/WRC is building the Compact and Light-weight Absolute RAdiometer (CLARA) to fly on the Norwegian Space Centre’s (NSC) NORSAT-1 mission. The CLARA is based on a new design by PMOD/WRC which minimizes size and weight while improving the radiometric performance. The NORSAT-1 mission is planned to be launched to a polar LEO in Q4 2015. The nominal mission duration is three years but NSC intends to operate NORSAT-1 for long as the platform and payload remain functional.
