Abstract [en]

The radiometer on-board the Odin satellite comprises four different sub-mm receivers covering the 486-581 GHz frequency range and one fixed frequency 119 GHz receiver. Two auto-correlators and one acousto-optical spectrometer serve as backends. This article gives an overview over the processing of the data delivered by these instruments and discusses calibration issues. Odin is a Swedish-led satellite project funded jointly by the Swedish National Space Board (SNSB), the Canadian Space Agency (CSA), the National Technology Agency of Finland (Tekes) and the Centre National d'Études Spatiales (CNES, France). Odin is operated by the Swedish Space Corporation (SSC), the project's prime industrial contractor.
