  2. Outline • Radiometer Off-line Analysis System • Algorithm Theory – a couple of changes in works since CDR • Pre-Launch Calibration Testing – Cal Plan draft 2 in review • Radiometer Hardware Simulator – Matlab code written

  3. Radiometer Off-line Analysis System • EM Version • File based running on WAMP, MySQL and Matlab on WinXP64 • Input: Files of DPU packets with LabView timestamp and serial number from last ICDS hardware simulator reset. • Output files (all Matlab except first set) • Raw SA, LA, and (packed) HK DN’s – block based formatting • Unpacked SA, LA, and HK temps DN’s – frame based formatting • DN-to-EU converted HK temps and frame-averaged DN’s of SA and LA • Frame-averaged TA’s (v and h) in K w/out physical temperature dependence • FM Version • Same SW tools and I/O for now. Will update TA alg after I&T at GSFC • Input still file based • Output now stored in database storage indexed by timestamps

  5. Current ATB Inverse model • Internal calibration at RFE • Loss corrections applied upstream to reflector • Polarimetric corrections depend on instrument performance

  6. Alternate Inverse model • Pre-launch calibration of ND’s and DL’s referred to OMT-coupler inputs • Move Z-mismatch correction forward in model to between OMT-couplers and OMT • Loss corrections applied upstream from there to reflector [v,h,U] or [v,h,p,m] ---- (TAf’) X

  7. Calibration Testing

  8. Radiometer Hardware Simulator • What is it: Matlab code to mimic behavior of radiometer hardware • Purpose • Predict hardware behavior over temperature • Pre-run T/V calibration testing • Re-run tests in software for troubleshooting anomalies • Inputs • Hardware constants (gains, losses, phases, ENR’s, temp. coeff’s, etc.) • Thermal zone temperatures • Antenna temperature Stokes vector • Radiometer switch state (DL, ND, CND, blank) • Output • VFC frequency in kHz for four channels • Plans • Working with Susie to integrate in e2e simulator • Format data into DPU output stream • Feed data into GSFC I&T/Cal ground system
