Abstract : This report describes the development of an infrared sensor operating in the 11 to 20 micron region using computerized inversion programs to yield temperature and water vapor profiles of the earth's atmosphere up to 6 km. The development of the sensor system hardware and software is summarized for the period 1975 through 1981. Atmospheric profiles acquired and processed are presented. (Author)
