CoSMIR
Conical Scanning Millimeter-wave Imaging Radiometer

The Conical Scanning Millimeter-wave Imaging Radiometer (CoSMIR) was designed to calibrate and validate the Special Sensor Microwave/Imager/Sounder (SSMIS). CoSMIR is a 9-channel radiometer that performs both conical and cross-track scanning. CosMIR has been used to study radiation and brightwave temperature.
