Paper Abstract

The Second-generation Global Imager (SGLI) is a mission instrument on the Global Change Observation Mission-Climate (GCOM-C) satellite. The SGLI includes two radiometers, the Visible and Near Infrared Radiometer (VNR) and Infrared Scanning Radiometer (IRS). The VNR is a multi-band optical imaging radiometer observing at wavelength range from 380 nm to 868.5 nm, including non-polarization and polarization observation. The test of the instruments consisting of VNR-SRU (Scanning Radiometer Unit) PFM (Proto-Flight model) has been finished, and the VNR-SRU PFM is under the phase of assembly and test. This paper describes the test result of the VNR-SRU PFM.
