Abstract
In this paper we focus on the status and development of critical detector and cooler technology in support of our instrument concept for a Geosynchronous orbiting Nadir Etalon Sounding Spectrometer (GeoNESS) for temperature, moisture and trace species. The concept is a technology derivative of the Cryogenic Limb Array Etalon Spectrometer (CLAES) which is deployed on the NASA Upper Atmospheric Research Satellite (UARS).
