Paper Abstract

The Michelson Interferometer for Passive Atmospheric Sounding (MIPAS) is a high-resolution Fourier-Transform spectrometer which is being developed as one of the ESA payload instruments to be flown on-board the Envisat environmental satellite. MIPAS will be used to measure concentration profiles of atmospheric constituents on a global scale over a period of several years. The first MIPAS instrument model will undergo integration and test during early 1997, prior to which the individual subsystems will be fully tested and characterized. This paper summarizes the critical instrument and subsystem requirements and gives an overview of the MIPAS design to meet those requirements.
