IMG instrument: Interferometric Monitor for Greenhouse Gases

It was launched on the ADEOS 1 satellite on 17 August 1996. It was a Fourier transform infrared interferometer for collecting and processing emission and absorption spectra from the Earth's surface and atmosphere in the thermal infrared range.
