Paper Abstract

SFIM Industries has designed a new radiometer for satellite observation of the earth radiation budget at the top of the a1mosphere. Compared to previous instruments. this new radiometer halfs costs. mass and probability of failure. while it improves radiometric performance significantly. The key idea to achieve these goals is to multiplex the various spectral channels of the instrument. This paper describes this new small size instrument and focuses on its advantages and shortcomings.
