The Joint Airborne IASI Validation Experiment (JAIVEx), a US-European collaboration focusing on validation of radiance and geophysical products from MetOp-A (IASI/AMSU) and Aqua (AIRS/AMSU), supports NPP & NPOESS (CrIS/ATMS)

Cal/Val and program risk mitigation. IASI, launched 19 October, 2006 on MetOp-A, is the first operational advanced ultra-spectral resolution temperature, humidity, and trace

gas sounding instrument to be flown on the Joint Polar System (JPS) of NPOESS and MetOp operational satellites for the purpose of improved weather, climate, and air quality

observation and forecasting. This presentation will detail the extensive and unprecedented dataset resulting from JAIVEx, as well as illustrate the unique benefits

achieved from implementing airborne assets, such as the NPOESS Airborne Sounding Testbed-Interferometer (NAST-I), within such cal/val campaigns.
