Abstract:

The High Altitude Millimeter-wave Limb Sounder HAMLS is a proposed instrument designed to perform millimeter-wave limb sounding to measure CO, O2, O3, temperature, and line-of-sight winds. These measurements will advance understanding of the middle and upper atmosphere, including the effects of energetic particle precipitation on the upper atmosphere. HAMLS is designed to be mounted on a single three-axis stabilized spacecraft in a sun-synchronous orbit.
