Short-Wave Infra-Red (SWIR) spectrometer for CO2 and Methane measurements in the atmosphe.


Carry a Short-Wave Infra-Red (SWIR) spectrometer as its primary payload, with the aim of deriving Carbon Dioxide (CO2) and Methane (CH4) and concentrations in the atmosphere by making observations in the 900–1700nm wavelength region, over the UAE.
