Paper Abstract

SFIM Industries has designed a new radiometer for satellite observation of the earth radiation budget at the top of the atmosphere. COmpared to previous instruments, this new radiometer halves 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 presents the main results of this study and focuses on the advantages and shortcomings of this new small size instrument.
