Paper Abstract

Using an updated modification of the computer program CORPS (Comprehensive Radiance Profile Synthesizer), horizon Profiles can be computed for the specific spectral response of a typical Horizon Sensor System (HSS) for a range of latitudes for every month of the year. These Profiles can be used to model the earth's atmosphere, primarily at the horizon. Using the earth model developed in this way, the operation of a particular HSS can be simulated and error due to radiance variation computed. Block diagrams of the computer programs are discussed and performances of two different HSS instruments are evaluated to demonstrate the flexibility and general usefulness of this approach.
