PRISM is a compact, lightweight, airborne Portable Remote Imaging SpectroMeter (PRISM) compatible with a wide range of piloted and Uninhabited Aerial Vehicle (UAV) platforms was developed at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. See the PRISM website. THIS IS NOT AN EOL INSTRUMENT.

Microwave Temperature Profiler

MTP is a scanning radiometer that observes emitted radiance (brightness temperature) at 56.363 GHz, 57.612 GHz, 58.363 GHz. It collects measurements at 10 viewing angles between +/- 80 degrees from horizontal. It is housed in a PMS canister with a modified fairing which has a transparent window built into the front. The block diagram below shows the wing-mounted and cabin components of the system (JPL proprietary design).
