Paper Abstract

The proto-flight test (PFT) of Infrared Scanning Radiometer (IRS) started in December 2014 to confirm the sensor performance. IRS is one of the two sensor units of Second Generation Global Imager (SGLI) on GCOM-C satellite. IRS has six optical channels from 1.1micron to 12 micron, corresponds to Short Wave Infrared (SWI) and Thermal Infrared (TIR) observation requirements of GCOM-C mission. The GCOM-C is planned for launch in 2017. This paper describes the SGLI-IRS test status.
