Objectives and Applications The HARP mission is designed to measure the microphysical properties of cloud water and ice particles in the atmosphere. HARP is a precursor for the new generation of imaging polarimeters to be used for the detailed measurements of aerosol and cloud properties. The HARP payload is a wide FOV (Field of View) imager that splits three spatially identical images into three independent polarizers and detector arrays. This technique achieves simultaneous imagery of three polarization states and is the key innovation to achieve high polarimetric accuracy with no moving parts.
