Paper Abstract

Operational sensors are designed and intended to reliably produce the measurements needed to develop high-value key environmental parameters. The Special Sensor Ultraviolet Spectrographic Imager (SSUSI) is slated to fly on the next five Defense Meteorological Satellite Program launches (beginning with the launch of F16 in Fall 2001). SSUSI will routinely produce maps of ionospheric and upper atmospheric composition and image the aurora. In this paper we describe these products and our validation plans and the process through which we can assure our sponsors and data products users of the reliability and accuracy of these products.
