AirSWOT is planned to be the calibration/validation and science support instrument for the NASA/CNES/CSA SWOT mission. The initial development of AirSWOT was funded by NASA's SBIR (Small Business Innovation Research) program. This initial phase consisted in building key instrument subsystems and was implemented by Remote Sensing Solutions (RSS), with Delwyn Moller (serving as the PI (principal investigator)). The subsequent integration of the AirSWOT payload and its engineering checkout is currently being co-funded by NASA's Earth Science and Technology Office (ESTO) and NASA's SBIR program. The co-PI's for this phase are Ernesto Rodriguez (JPL) and Delwyn Moller (RSS). After completion of engineering checkout, in October, 2012, AirSWOT will be managed by the SWOT project (Ernesto Rodriguez, point of contact).
