Paper Abstract

ADEOS-II was launched successfully on December 14, 2002 by NASDA with H-IIA rocket flight IV, and named as “Midori II”. It carries six Earth observing sensors including Global Imager (GLI) and Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer (AMSR) developed by NASDA. These Earth observation sensors obtain data 24 hours a day. The observed data are relayed by “Kodama” (Data Relay Test Satellite (DRTS)), or are directly downlink to NASDA/EOC and foreign ground stations in Kiruna, Alaska, and Wallops. Level-1 and higher level processing is performed by GLI and AMSR data processing systems at EOC to create the science products. The products are archived at Data Storage Systems (DSS) and released to the users according to the requests after the products quality is confirmed through hardware checkout, calibration and validation process. NASDA performed the initial checkout of ADEOS-II satellite and onboard sensor hardware for four months after launch. The following eight months are to be used for the evaluation of ground system and products validation. Summary of ground system evaluation is shown and data processing system is focused.
