Paper Abstract

The Japanese Advanced Meteorological Imager (JAMI) was developed by Raytheon and delivered to Space Systems/Loral as the Imager Subsystem for the Japanese MTSAT-1R system. Detailed characterization tests show JAMI meets all MTSAT-1R requirements with margin. JAMI introduces the next generation of operational weather imagers in geosynchronous Earth orbit (GEO) and provides much improved spatial sampling, radiometric sensitivity, Earth coverage and 24-hour observation capability compared with current GEO imagers.
