Abstract
The Advanced Technology Microwave Sounder (ATMS) is a new generation of microwave instrument for measuring atmospheric temperature and humidity profiles from satellites. It is being developed in the U.S. for the future operational weather satellite systems, called the National Polar- orbiting Operational Environment Satellite System (NPOESS). This paper presents some key design features of the ATMS, its essential characteristics, the expected performance, and program status.
