Abstract
Environmental remote sensing systems, currently being developed, carry multiple remote sensing sensors on a single spacecraft platform, producing dozens of weather data products with hundreds of attributes in quasi-real time. In this paper we present a capability to simulate the various components of such a system in order to predict the quality of the data products, as well as assess the impact of changing design parameters on the accuracy of the weather data. Such a detailed simulation tool is essential to systems producing scientific data products whether it is remote sensing of weather products or chemical and biological products. It is valuable during the design phase to ensure the system design produces the expected performance, during the verification phase to ensure the system as built will meet the specified performance, and during on-orbit calibration and validation phase to validate the performance of the deployed system.
