Abstract:

A CONCEPT FEASIBILITY STUDY FOR A SATELLITE-BASED OPTICAL-INFRARED DISTURBED ATMOSPHERE SIGNATURE PROGRAM IS PROPOSED. THE INITIAL CONCEPT IS FOR A POLAR-ORBITING OPTICAL-INFRARED ANALOG TO THE HILAT SATELLITE WHERE-IN A HIGH PROBABILITY OF AURORAL ACQUISITION IS ANTICIPATED. INITIAL TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES OF CRYOGENIC OPERATION AND EXPECTED LIFETIME ARE DISCUSSED IN TERMS OF THE IRAS SUCCESS. THE CONCEPT FOR CORRELATED EXPERIMENTS OF AIRCRAFT AND GROUND-BASED OBSERVATIONS OF AURORA AND/OR A CHEMICAL RELEASE ARE INTRODUCED AND INCLUDE STRUCTURE INFORMATION. THE DATA-BASE POTENTIAL OF SUCH A CONCEPT EXCEEDS THE TOTAL DATA PRESENTLY AVAILABLE TO DNA NWE ATMOSPHERIC-EFFECTS MODELLERS, AND REPRESENTS A MUCH BROADER STATISTICAL SAMPLING THAN ROCKET-BASED EXPERIMENTS.
