Summary TRUTHS “in-flight calibration laboratory” removes uncertainty due to storage, launch and degradation and its mission provides this benefit, together with SI traceability, to all other EO optical sensors. • Set of SI traceable reference targets: Sun, Moon, network of ground sites • Utilises terrestrially implemented techniques and technology - In-flight calibration concept applicable to other missions • Order of magnitude improvement in measurement accuracy • Baseline for detection of climate change – reduce need for overlapping data sets • Quality Assure data used by ‘decision makers’ and improve synergy between sensors • Tools to underpin GMES and GEOSS initiative • Identify the polluters • Improved algorithms to allow quantitative measurement of bio-physical products • Provide data to improve understanding of natural solar induced variation on climate and compare with anthropogenic effects. The step change reduction in uncertainty and spin-off benefits is analogous to that obtained in NMIs when cryogenic radiometers were introduced in
TRUTHS : - Status • Proposed to EEOP (2002) - Not selected although received significant interest – reviewers conclusion: – “If the aim is merely to provide accurate, calibrated measurements of Earths spectral radiances and of solar and lunar irradiance, the mission can be classified as a solution. To the best of the reviewers’ knowledge, there is presently no strong need for absolutely accurate Earth spectral radiances since other errors dominate the radiometric error budgets of planned missions. ” ? ? ? – Models and atmospheric correction can only improve with better data to constrain them and test improvements - Mission seeks to provide solutions to wide range of EO communities Atmosphere Solar Land Ocean Should be benefit – seen as a weakness Media interest Broad support from UK govt departments (looking at funding mechanisms!) International collaborations seen as essential
Status 2 Costs: Estimates by EU industrial team 5 yr mission operations, Satellite, Launch - ~$40 M (SSTL) In-flight calibration system including CSAR and TSI measurements - ~$12 M Hyperspectral imager + solar spec irradiance - ~$12 M - Plan to start designing and building operational engineering model of CSAR from Apr 2007 in collaboration with WRC PMOD (Swiss) -Awaiting Decision by EU on New Metrology funding programme - potential to fund flight Calibration system Need study: - to optimise observation / mission requirements - identify operational instruments/suppliers/partners FOR SUCCESS MISSION SHOULD BE INTERNATIONAL Perhaps developed under CEOS?
