Abstract
This paper presents an analysis both of the NOAA-11 calibration system performance and of the changes of the solar diffuser reflectivity as measured by this system. In particular, after two years of inflight operation, the NOAA-11 system's performance is either on par or exceeding preflight expectations with none of the NOAA-9 problems evident. The solar diffuser displays a wavelength dependent degradation of about 0.5 percent per year at 404 nm to about 2 percent at 185 nm which is consistent with previous diffuser reflectivity changes observed on NIMBUS-7 and NOAA-9.
