We compare results with coincident measurements. We find 0.045 g/cm2 (4.2%) negative bias and 0.28 g/cm2 (26.3%) root-mean-square difference (RMSD) in water vapor layer comparison with an in situ hygrometer and an overall RMSD of 1.28 g/m3 (38%) water vapor amount in profile by profile comparisons, with differences distributed evenly around zero.

Development and Test of an Active Pixel Sensor Detector for Heliospheric Imager on Solar Orbiter and Solar Probe Plus
Abstract The Naval Research Laboratory is developing next generation CMOS imaging arrays for the Solar Orbiter and Solar Probe Plus missions. The device development is nearly complete with flight device delivery scheduled for summer of 2013. The 4Kx4K mosaic array with 10micron pixels is well suited to the panoramic imaging required for the Solar Orbiter […]
On the Potential to Enhance the Spatial Resolution of the Day/Night Band (DNB) Channel of the Visible and Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIRRS) for the Second Joint Polar Satellite System (JPSS-2) and Beyond
This paper examines the feasibility and potential benefits of enhancing the spatial resolution of the VIIRS DNB channel
for the JPSS-2 mission and beyond.
