Paper Abstract

The Ozone Layer Monitoring Experiment (OLME) is one of the primary payloads for the Chilean FASat-Alfa microsatellite. The objective of this experiment is to measure solar backscattered ultra violet (SBUV) radiation at several wavelengths, with the purpose to retrieve total ozone content, specially over Chile and the Antarctica. The OLME instrument must be light, small and relatively cheap, to meet the mission constraints, so a simple unorthodox design is pursued, using CCDs and interference filters, together with non-imaging detectors. The design concepts behind this new approach to ozone remote sensing are presented, together with the processing procedures developed to retrieve ozone content from radiance measurements.
