Abstract:

A preliminary model for predicting the performance of the MSX SPIRIT III interferometer has been implemented as a computer code module that provides estimates of expected total noise and saturation levels. This report gives the theoretical development of the model and includes usage instructions for the code. A later version of the code will be used in the automated analysis of SPIRIT III interferometer data at the Phillips Laboratory Data Analysis Center. The model has provided predictions of system performance in planned MSX experiments for remote sensing of atmospheric trace constituents.
