SIM Calibration and Validation

This page provides information on calibration and validation of Solar Irradiance Monitor (SIM) onboard FY-3 series satellites.

There are three generations of SIM, the first generation is SIM-I onboard FY-3A and FY-3B, the second generation is SIM-II onboard FY-3C, FY-3E and FY-3F.
