Paper Abstract

The Cross-track Infrared Sounder (CrIS) is one of the mission-critical instruments onboard the National Polar-orbiting Operational Environmental Satellite System (NPOESS). CrIS develops vertical profiles of moisture, temperature, and pressure in the earth's atmosphere by measuring upwelling atmospheric infrared radiation at very high spectral resolution. This paper describes initial test results for the CrIS Engineering Development Unit #3 (EDU3).
