Description

The scope of this procurement of the ESA is to guarantee the maintenance and the evolution of the Scatterometer data processor prototype and the Scatterometer calibration tool (TOSCA). More notably it involves a study of the cross-calibration of the scatterometer on-board ERS-2 with the scatterometer on-board METOP.
