On-orbit Calibrator's First Show on FY-4 Satellite[Feb 28, 2017]
Last winter, China's new generation of geostationary meteorological satellite FY-4 was launched in Xichang Satellite Launch Center with Long March 3 B carrier rocket, in which scanning imaging radiometer (SIR) is one of four important loads. SIR is an important tool to catch the spectral radiometric information of the earth's surface and clouds to improve the accuracy of weather forecasts and climate observations. And the on-orbit calibrator developed by a joint team played its first show on satellite FY-4 to ensure the precision of SIR.
