NASA 'A' Train Satellite Constellation System


NASA's "A-Train" satellite constellation will consist of six satellites flying in formation around the globe. Each satellite will have unique measurement capabilities that greatly complement each other. Near simultaneous measurements of aerosols, clouds, temperature, relative humidity, radiative fluxes, and atmospheric constituents will be obtained over the globe during all seasons.
