Abstract

The results of the commissioning of the IKFS-2 instrument and its subsequent operation onboard the Meteor-M no. 2 polar orbiting meteorological satellite are presented. Comparison of the IKFS-2 data with independent satellite measurements shows that its performance characteristics are in accordance with the design specification. It is therefore possible to realize the IKFS-2 mission objectives for obtaining data on the meteorological parameters and composition of the atmosphere.

Keywords:
