Two NOAA polar orbiting satellites carried the TOVS system during STORM-FEST. TOVS carried: High Resolution Infrared Radiation Sounder (HIRS/2) measured incident radiation primarily in the IR; Microwave Sounding Unit (MSU) a passivescanning microwave spectrometer with 4 channels; Stratospheric Sounding Unit (SSU), a step-scanning far- infrared spectrometer with 3 channels; Solar Backscattered Ultraviolet system (SBUV/2) maps total ozone concentrations and vertical ozone distirbutions.
