Instrument Performance Verification and Optimisation
  • Overview of instrument and commissioning phase
  • Functional performance
    • Thermal, Cooler, Scan Mechanism
  • Calibration Subsystems
    • Blackbodies, VISCAL unit, Gain-Offset Loop
  • Signal Channel Performance
    • Dynamic Range, Radiometric Noise, Pixel Map Alignment, Low Gain Mode, EMC
  • Conclusions on instrument performance
aatsr overview
AATSR - OVERVIEW
  • Key Aims
    • Measurement of global sea-surface temperatures to <0.3K
    • Global vegetation monitoring
    • Cloud Properties
    • Continuation of SST datasets provided by ATSR-1 and ATSR-2
  • Thermal IR channels at 12µm, 11µm and 3.7µm
  • Visible/Near Infrared Channels at 1.6µm, 0.87µm, 0.66µm and 0.56µm

aatsr cooler subsystem
AATSR Cooler Subsystem
  • IR detectors are maintained at 80±1K
  • Cooler subsystem can lift 600mW with a mounting interface temperature of 25°C
  • Maximum power demand is 53W during cool-down
  • 4 years design life

aatsr commissioning
AATSR Commissioning
  • Initial Switch-On
    • Activate instrument systems in a controlled sequence
  • Checkout
    • Verify function of subsystems
    • Characterise performance
  • Optimise subsystems
    • Mechanisms (Cooler, blackbody heaters, scan mechanism)
    • Pixel Map
    • Control Loops
  • Configure for nominal operations
constraints
Constraints
  • ICU switch-on not before L+7 to allow for LEOP and PEB switch-on
  • Initial cooldown not before L+14 to allow FPA outgassing
  • First outgassing must start 14 days after start of first cooldown
  • Visible channel optimisation to be completed before start of cool-down.
    • Condensation on IR-FPA expected to affect calibration (based on ATSR-2 experience)
  • Allow 5 days turn-around time for analysis of science data.
