The Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS) and its two companion instruments (AMSU) and (HSB) are designed to provide, worldwide, atmospheric temperature and humidity profiles with radiosonde accuracy. The performance of AIRS since launch on Aqua has been exceptional indicating that it will meet or exceed its objectives.
