CLARREO Pathfinder-on-ISS
International Space Station/Climate Absolute Radiance & Reflectivity Observatory Pathfinder

NASAPlanned202020211 year nominal mission. The goal of the Climate Absolute Radiance and Refractivity Observatory (CLARREO) mission is to improve our understanding of climate change by providing high accuracy measurements of the change in key climate variables over decadal timescales. CLARREO Pathfinder is a technical demonstration on the ISS and a major step in reducing the cost and technical risk for these high accuracy measurements.CLARREO Pathfinder Reflected Solar (hyperspectral Type: Inclined, non-sun-synchronous

COSMIC-2A (Equatorial)
COSMIC-2A (Equatorial)

NOAA / NSPO / UCARPlanned20172022This is a radio occultation mission supporting meteorology and ionosphere & climate measurements. The 12-satellite COSMIC-2A/2B constellation (6 equatorial and 6 polar) will produce over 4 times the daily total of occultation events as COSMIC-1 (3000 versus 12,000). This provides the capability to reconstruct the 3D ionospheric electron density structures for ionospheric space weather monitoring within a dramatically short data accumulation period. TGRS will receive signals from GPS, Galileo, and Glonass. IVM, RF Beacon, TGRSType:

DESIS-on-ISS
DLR Earth Sensing Imaging Spectrometer for MUSES

DLRPlanned20172019DESIS detects changes in the land surface, oceans and atmosphere; it will contribute to the development of effective measures to protect the environment and climate and allows scientists to detect changes in ecosystems and to make statements on the condition of forests and agricultural land. Among other things, its purpose is to secure and improve the global cultivation of food.DESISType: Inclined, non-sun-synchronous
