to the instrument cradle. Once the cradle is set up, it is easy to interchange ISAR radiometers, secure in the knowledge that the alignment is identical. The CASOTS-II system can be dismantled for field experiments and fits into a standard aluminum crate for secure and easy transportation. We note here that our primary application is to maintain the traceable calibration of ISAR shipborne radiometers that measure the SST skin temperature. This application requires that the radiant temperature of

-space Technology Experiment (LITE) was a concept demonstration experiment that flew on the Space Transportation System (STS)-64 mission in September 1994 ( Winker et al. 1996 ). LITE was the first lidar to observe the atmosphere from orbit and demonstrated the potential of satellite lidar for observing cloud and aerosol. LITE had high sensitivity because of its low orbit and high laser pulse energies, but the receiver had limited dynamic range. Cloud signals were saturated at the high detector gains used to
