Short summary
For the first time we are able to demonstrate that IASI-A and the AATSR retain their pre-launch characteristics (temperature dependence) in space. This has given tremendous confidence to the calibration community such as the Global Space-based Inter-Calibration system (15 nation consortium) who use IASI-A as an in-orbit reference to monitor their geo-stationary satellites.
