The POM-02 has all the features of the POM-01, but with extended waveband ranges into the near infrared. There is growing interest in monitoring aerosols of larger size and this requires measurement at longer wavelengths.
- Extended near infrared range
- Wide operating temperature range
- Ideal for ground-thruthing satellite data
In addition to the optical system with silicon photo-diode detector of the POM-01, the POM-02 sky radiometer has a second optical system with an Indium Gallium Arsenide infrared detector. The filter wheel has 11 wavebands, providing measurements to 2200 nm. It also has additional UV channels.
The POM-02 must be connected to a PC running the operating software in order to make measurements and store data and like the POM-01 data can be post-processed using the SKYRAD.pack software from SKYNET. Maintenance is minimal; consisting of regular cleaning of the optical windows and checking the desiccant in the radiometer.
