Status: Future, Implementation
Mission Category: Earth Systematic Missions Program
Launch Date: 2025

CLARREO Pathfinder (CPF) will have a Reflected Solar spectrometer on the International Space Station (ISS) in the early 2020s that will detect the complete spectrum of radiation from the Sun reflected by Earth. CLARREO Pathfinder (CPF) provides a crucial step toward informing strategic planning by government agencies (e.g. DoD and DOE), the operation and sustainment of key national assets (e.g. coastal military installations), and risk assessment by the reinsurance industry in response to hazards such as flooding and inundation.
