TEMPEST-D (Temporal Experiment for Storms and Tropical Systems - Demonstrator) is a 6U CubeSat mission to provide risk mitigation for the six-satellite TEMPEST mission that will provide the first temporal observations of cloud and precipitation processes on a global scale. These observations are important to understand the linkages in and between Earth’s water and energy balance, as well as to improve our understanding of cloud model microphysical processes that are vital to climate change prediction. TEMPEST-D consists of one of the proposed TEMPEST 6U CubeSats, to raise the technology readiness level of the system to TRL 9 and to demonstrate its measurement capabilities.
