CIMR Mission Requirement Document v1.5

The Mission Requirement Document (MRD) gathers all user needs for the Copernicus Imaging Microwave Radiometer (CIMR) mission and translates them into requirements for -among others- the instrument, the platform, the orbit, and the geophysical (Level 1 and Level 2) products. It is a living document, which is why some requirements will appear as TBD until the trade-off analyses are conducted.

The MRD is a public document, and can be commented by all. Have a remark on the CIMR MRD? Contact us.
