Developing a space mission is a long process that involves a lot of tests, sometimes in harsh environments. An airborne campaign was recently carried out in the Arctic between Greenland, Iceland and Svalbard. Enduring temperatures of 30 degrees below zero, a team tested an airborne version of an imaging microwave radiometer to support the development of a potential satellite mission for Europe’s Copernicus programme.
