Cal/Val Activities

Current cal/val activities are intended to acquire and process data for the development, calibration, test, and improvement of models and algorithms of Tandem-L data products. The collected data will be also used to develop and test techniques and procedures for the validation of Tandem-L data products after the launch.


  • Calibration: The set of operations that establish, under specified conditions, the relationship between sets of values of quantities indicated by a measuring instrument or measuring system and the corresponding values realized by standards (JCGM).
  • Validation: The process of assessing by independent means the quality of the data products derived from the system outputs (CEOS-WGCV).
