AMSU-A is one of six science payload instruments that will be integrated into the EOS-PM spacecraft this year.
The AMSU-A team deserves a lot of credit for delivering this instrument ahead of schedule to our customer," said Carol Neves, Aerojet AMSU program manager.
AMSU-A is manufactured at Aerojet's Azusa facility for use on weather- forecasting satellites utilized by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and other agencies.
Each AMSU-A shipset consists of two units - A1 and A2 - with 15 channels operating over a frequency range of 23 to 89 GHz (1 GHz equals 1,000,000,000 cycles per second).
We are very proud of our team for achieving this significant milestone,'' said Ron Simpson, Aerojet's AMSU-A program director.
