Abstract

This article contains information on how the Hyperspectral Microwave Atmospheric Sounder is the next step in technology for weather and climate missions. This technology can help improve both the vertical and horizontal resolutions of the atmosphere. Hyperspectral microwave describes an all-weather sounding that acts just like hyperspectral infrared sounders. In hyperspectral infrared sounders clouds decease the accuracy of the results, this is a big reason hyperspectral microwave are considered necessary. Hyperspectral measurements allow the user to determine the Earth's temperature with vertical resolution exceeding 1km (1093.61 yards). One of the objectives of Hyperspectral Microwave Atmospheric Sounder (HyMAS) is to develop a data system that will store and display the date received. PIC24 data stream will transfer 52 Data plus 16 H/K = 64 channels over Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI) at 100 Hz to scan head computer. Serial Peripheral is a synchronous protocol that allows the master device communication with a slave device. A Graphical User Interface (GUI) will be used to display the data received. A Graphical User Interface (GUI) is a type of user interface that allows users to interact with electronic devices using images rather than text commands. The author also develops documentation on how to operate the Explorer 16 development board. An Explorer 16 board can be used to interface with the emulator.
